Approval recomended for solar farm

In October, Carolina Solar Energy announced that the firm planned a 70-megawatt solar farm to be located outside of Chase City on Spanish Grove Road.
The firm filed a special exception permit request with Mecklenburg County for the “Bluestone Farm” project. The request went before the Mecklenburg County Planning Commission for a hearing on Thursday night.
No one appeared to speak out against the project, and the planning commission voted to recommend approval for the request.
The Mecklenburg County Board of Supervisors is expected to take up the issue at its regular monthly meeting on Monday.
