AUBURN - A proposed solar farm south of Auburn will be the subject of two city meetings on June 22.

The Auburn Renewables Solar Array project is proposed on the west side of Interstate 69, between the interstate highway and County Road 19, and south of the Scot Industries plant on County Road 48.

On roughly 80-acres, the solar panels would produce about 14.68 megawatts of direct current or 11.25 megawatts of alternating current.

According to an application for a variance to develop a solar farm, construction is proposed to start in July, and be completed in May of 2022.

The land is currently zoned for light industrial and high tech use.
