August 29, 2018, 6:00 PM @ Carbondale Civic Center,
There have been some noteworthy changes to incentives that impact Solar
projects in Illinois over the past 18 months and we want to let you know what
they mean to the proposed Solar Energy Farm on the Former Koppers Wood -
Treatment Site situated in northeast Carbondale. Brightfields has been working hard over that time in support of the local efforts to bring more renewable energy projects and jobs to the state. We are pleased to give an update on the progress that was made, what’s happened with the project since our last meeting and the next steps as we work on getting it built. Brightfields invites the community to a discussion where we can refresh the community members on specific details related to construction, layout, and the technology of the solar arrays. We will provide more information on the steps needed to complete the project and explain why we are renewing the Special Use Permit. The focus of the meeting is to provide information on the upcoming solar redevelopment.
