City looks at proposal for solar farms

Quincy’s plan commission is reviewing whether to rezone two pieces of property to put solar farms on Elligton Road and Koch’s Lane.

The zoning request comes from a Minnesota developer who’s been launching solar farms in various parts of Illinois.

“You’re going to see basically solar arrays spread out over a large field and that’s really it,” Quincy Planning and Development Director said. “It will be surrounded by a security fence and it will have emergency access, if we need to get in and out of it and we’re working through some of the site plan details currently, with the developer.”

City council will decide if the proposal for the commercial solar farm goes through.
