As public hearing looms, questions remain about Spotsylvania solar farm proposal

This article discusses reaction from local residents about the Spotsylvania solar farm proposal.

A proposed 500-megawatt power facility that would pepper a 10-square-mile rural area in western Spotsylvania County with 1.8 million solar panels is the largest such proposal in the country.

The proposed solar facility also is a big deal for the county and its residents.

Since the facility was proposed in January, it has consumed more and more time of state and county officials, residents and representatives of Utah-based Sustainable Energy, which filed for the special-use permit to build the solar farm.
