A solar farm is coming to Vinton County.
The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) on Thursday authorized Vinton Solar Energy LLC to construct a 125 megawatt solar farm in Vinton County.
The Vinton Solar Facility will be located on approximately 1,950 acres of pasture land near McArthur, Ohio. The facility will consist of multiple photovoltaic arrays connected to a network of electrical infrastructure that will transmit generated electricity to the power grid.
The project will provide additional electric service reliability in the southeastern Ohio area.
