Solar energy continues to grow across the country, and one local community is looking at its solar future.
Michelle Knox with Wind Solar USA presented more information on solar energy to the mayors present at Monday’s Christian County Mayor’s informal meeting. Pana mayor Don Kroski says the city has plenty of land and is near a utility substation, both of which are big benefits towards building a solar farm in the community.
Kroski says the sooner Pana can get involved with solar power, the better it will be for the community.
Kroski says the city already owns some sites that could be used for solar farms, and he does not want his community left behind in upgrading its energy sources.
