Public Hearing Scheduled For Proposed Pickaway County Solar Farm


The Ohio Power Siting Board has scheduled an October 22nd public hearing on a proposal to build a 199 megawatt solar farm in Pickaway County. 

The 214 million dollar project is being developed by an Atlanta-based company on land in Deer Creek and Perry Townships near Williamsport. The facility is expected to be operational in 2022, and will produce enough electricity to power 70 thousand homes.
