It’s exciting to hear about three recent solar farm proposals – two in Yadkin County and a third in Stokes. The more we use this advanced, clean technology, the merrier for our communities, in terms of economy and health.
Wooten Farm LLC would be built in East Bend and Ashley Solar Farm LLC in Hamptonville, as Richard Craver reported recently in the Journal. The farms are comparable in terms of size; both are projected to be 5-megawatt farms and would use around 25,000 photovoltaic panels. They would be built on land leased from local owners.
