Solar changes adopted
December 18, 2019
Changes to the county’s industrial solar permitting rules, which would force developers to seek comments from the trona industry and state agencies like the Wyoming Game and Fish Department were approved by the Sweetwater County commissioners Tuesday in a 4-0 vote.
Commissioner Wally Johnson was absent from the meeting.
The changes come after issues arose during the Sweetwater Solar permitting process. A second solar facility, Raven Solar, is proposed near the current Sweetwater Solar location.
“I think it’s a good change, a good addition,” Commissioner Randy Wendling said.
