If zoning for this project is approved by county officials next week, a 640-acre solar farm could be built in the Golden Valley area. But the project may already be in jeopardy, pending a proposal to shut down all renewable energy projects in Mojave County next year.
The proposed solar project, led by Texas-based ReNRG Partners, could be located in the Oatman Highway area. But for the project to work, the county board would need to vote in favor of zoning the land as an energy and solar overlay zone. The Mojave County Planning and Zoning Commission voted in favor of the project earlier this year, 5-3, and the county board will make a final decision at its next commission meeting in Kingman on Monday. is.
