Solar in Stuarts Draft
Augusta County coordinator Nancy Sorrells has been following closely the proposed 125 MW project near Stuarts Draft and Lyndhurst. This project is proposed on land that is currently zoned agricultural, but slated long-term for industrial and residential development by the county.
Nancy has met with opponents and supporters of the project, county officials, leasing landowners, neighbors and the developer. She’s also provided county officials with our set of recommendations for considering utility-scale solar proposals.

They’re expected to consider the proposal again in April.
