Solar Farm meeting

Community members take a look at some maps of sites planned for development for the Ragland Solar Project, a solar farm project by BrightNight Power, at a public meeting Wednesday at the Commonwealth Event Center.

Around 50 people attended an informational meeting Wednesday night to learn about the Ragland Solar Project, a solar farm project from solar company BrightNight Power that plans to build a 125-megawatt facility in western McCracken County.

Over the last year, BrightNight has worked out lease agreements with 32 landowners owners in McCracken County to lease their land for the company to place equipment, including solar panels, on the parcels, BrightNight Director of Development Tyler Coon said. BrightNight representatives have also met with local leaders, people who live near the project area, community members and business leaders, he added.
