The Ohio Power Siting Board will hold a local public hearing regarding Kingwood Solar I LLC’s proposal to construct a 175 megawatt solar farm in Greene County.

The hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. Nov. 15, at the Greene County Expo Center, Assembly Hall, 120 Fairground Rd., Xenia, Ohio 45385.

The Kingwood Solar project would cover a 1,500-acre project area in Xenia, Cedarville and Miami townships . The project would include electrical collection lines, inverters, access roads, perimeter fencing, a substation and a generation interconnect line.

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

Witnesses will register when they arrive at the hearing and 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.

Additional information regarding the proposed solar facility is available on the OPSB website at www.OPSB.ohio.gov in case number 21-0117-EL-BGN.

This solar hearing joins a line-up of four other public hearings set this fall for proposed solar projects in Wyandot, Clinton, Allen, Auglaize and Highland counties. Yellow Wood Solar, Tymochtee Solar, Birch Solar and Dodson Creek Solar would generate a combined 837 megawatts of power and cover about 8,000 acres of land, if they are all approved by the Ohio Power Siting Board.
