An in-person hearing is set for a 101 megawatt solar farm planned for Wood County.  The hearing for Juliet Solar is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sept. 8 at Simpson Banquet Room, 1291 Conneaut Ave., Bowling Green, OH 43402.

The project, proposed by Juliet Energy Project LLC, would be located on about 670 acres of private land in Weston and Milton townships and the Village of Weston.

The purpose of the local public hearings is to allow individuals, who are not parties to the case, to provide sworn testimony regarding the proposed facility to the Ohio Power Siting Board. Testimony will be limited to five minutes per witness, and the hearing transcript will become part of the case record considered by the board. 

Witnesses are not required to pre-register online in order to testify at the hearing. Witnesses will register when they arrive at the hearing and will testify in the order in which they register. If a witness wishes to supplement their testimony with an exhibit, a copy of the document should be provided to the administrative law judge during the hearing. 

Unless otherwise specified by the facility, individuals who are not fully vaccinated should plan to wear a face covering and socially distance.

Additional information regarding the Julie Solar proposed solar farm is available on the website at www.opsb.ohio.gov in case number 20-1760-EL-BGN.
