Crook County Solar 1 was granted approval to build the first solar farm in Central Oregon.

The [Crook County Planning] Commission held a public hearing on the project following a prior hearing in January that was spawned by an appeal filed by John Moss. The Powell Butte resident was upset that an access road would run directly through his farming operation.
