Springfield Farm Solar, LLC is proposing to build a utility-scale solar energy facility west of Ashland off of Elmont Road and Cedar Lane along Stony Run. The request involves multiple parcels, with the solar energy facility located on 326 acres of a 938-acre site. Upon completion, it could produce up to 80 MW of electricity.
For this facility to be constructed, a conditional use permit (CUP) must be approved. The CUP request must be reviewed by the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors and public hearings held. Public hearings have not yet been advertised, but community meetings were held on August 21, 2023 and December 6, 2023.
