Solar farm proposed to help power Kendall County Courthouse

Yorkville is poised to review a proposal for a 7.4-acre solar farm designed to supply power to the Kendall County Courthouse.

The project has been touted by the Kendall County Board as an energy- and cost-saving move.

Lincoln, Nebraska-based GRNE Solar is seeking special use permit approval from Yorkville to install and operate a solar farm consisting of about 6,400 solar modules at the southeast corner of John Street and Beecher Road west of the Kendall County Government campus in Yorkville.

The proposal will go before the Yorkville City Council Economic Development Committee Oct. 2.
