Solar farm interest in Moultrie County prompted the county planning and zoning committee to look into regulating the possible growth in this area.
Planning and zoning director Jan Haegen reported a single solar farm company had made about 400 contacts in 15 area counties.
Farm advisor Tyler Harvey noted that some 150 landowners had been contacted in Douglas and Moultrie counties and some of the contacts were about 40-60 acre parcels.
Director Haegen reported that, of those counties where contacts were made, none had active resolutions to regulate solar farming. He explained he was reviewing information concerning where the farms could be located, financial protection to cover possible removal of equipment and a number of issues relating to neighboring property owner concerns.
