Ada County Commissioners review Kuna solar farm proposal

Ada County Commissioners review Kuna solar farm proposal

Ada County commissioners weigh in on solar farm project south of Kuna.

On Wednesday evening, commissioners could decide whether a proposed 2,000-plus-acre solar farm moves forward.

It’s a story Idaho News 6 has been following for weeks, and neighborhood reporter Allie Triepke has spoken to neighbors in Ada and Canyon County as the site spans both counties.

Many neighbors are fiercely opposed to the proposal, saying it threatens rural Idaho farmland.

There are also a few neighbors who are supportive, or who are looking for more information.

Representatives from the Powers Butte Energy Center, owned by energy company Savion, are also expected to attend tonight’s meeting.

Idaho Power, whose customers would receive energy from the solar farm, says the Treasure Valley needs new energy resources.

Neighborhood Reporter Allie Triepke will be inside at tonight’s meeting to update you on the results of the proposal.
