Solar amendment approved

After a public hearing on January 16th, the Clarke County Board of Supervisors approved an amendment to the Solar Power Plant and Use Regulations.

Effective immediately, the amendment allows for utility scale solar to be in areas of the county where they already exist.

The amendment also clarifies that homeowners and farms may install solar to power on their private lands.

Any spare power can be sold back to the power grid.
