Yellowbud Solar Approved for 1,300-Acre Ross and Pickaway County Site

The Ohio Power Siting Board has approved Yellowbud Solar LLC’s application to construct a 274 megawatt solar-powered generating facility in Deerfield and Union townships of Ross County, and Deercreek and Wayne townships of Pickaway County.

The Yellowbud Solar Project will occupy approximately 1,383 acres within a 2,040-acre project area. The project will consist of large arrays of ground-mounted photovoltaic modules (commonly referred to as solar panels), mounted on a tracking system that will rotate to track the sun.

The project will include associated facilities such as access roads, meteorological stations, electric collection lines, inverters and transformers, a substation, a 138 kilovolt gen-tie line, a point of interconnection switchyard, and an operations and maintenance building.
