KINGMAN – Mohave County continues to support green energy initiatives.
The Planning and Zoning Commission has approved construction of a small 1.5 megawatt, photovoltaic solar plant located north of Interstate 40 and east of Hackberry Road.
Some property owners, however, are seeing red.
Mike Theriot said the project may devalue his property. He wants the applicant to buy nearby land to create a buffer zone.
Solar plant project representative Kathy Tackett-Hicks said the plant would be a small distribution station that would deliver power directly to the local grid and would be no higher than a single-family home with a buffer of about 50 feet.
The commission unanimously approved the project. It heads to the Board of Supervisors in September.
