COLUMBUS — The Ohio Power Siting Board approved Yellowbud Solar, LLC’s application to construct a 274 megawatt solar-powered generating facility located in Deerfield and Union townships, in Ross County, and Deercreek and Wayne townships, in Pickaway County, Feb. 18.

The Yellowbud Solar Project will occupy approximately 1,383 acres within a 2,040-acre project area. The project will consist of large arrays of ground-mounted photovoltaic modules, commonly referred to as solar panels, mounted on a tracking system that will rotate to track the sun.

The project will include associated facilities such as access roads, meteorological stations, electric collection lines, inverters and transformers, a substation, a 138 kilovolt gen-tie line, a point of interconnection switchyard and an operations and maintenance building.

More information about the decision is available at opsb.ohio.gov. Copies of the opinion and order will be available in case number 20-0972-EL-BGN. A recorded webcast of the meeting is available on the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio’s YouTube channel.
