Nebraska county officials recommend solar project moratorium

Members of a Nebraska county’s planning and zoning commission are calling for a moratorium on solar energy projects.

The Hastings Tribune reports that the Adams County Planning and Zoning Commission voted 9-0 to recommend the moratorium until June 30, 2019. The recommendation will be forwarded to the Adams County Board of Supervisors.

Commission Chairman Dean Rolls says officials want time to study solar energy generation and see what regulations are needed.

The Hastings City Council approved a similar moratorium in June. The city and the county currently don’t have any regulations for commercial or small-scale solar generation facilities.

Adams County Highway Superintendent Dawn Miller says developers are looking at constructing a solar generation facility near a highly traveled roadway.
