The public is invited to a community meeting on a proposed solar farm along Old Kingsville Road.

The meeting is to share information about the Bandana and Millhouse solar projects. 

Cypress Creek Renewables expects to invest more than $145 million into the projects.

“Through the investments, Jim Wells County can expect spending of over $86 million in the local economy during construction and additional tax revenue over the lifetime of the projects while adding to school populations or permanently increasing the number of cars on the road,” said Nicko Keene, senior project manager.

The company is an independent power producer and developer with offices in Texas, North Carolina and California. 

The projects will supply enough power for about 18,000 homes annually.

Once constructed, photovoltaic solar farms do not produce light, noise or additional traffic on local roads.

The meeting will take place on Tuesday, June 26 at the Alice Multi-Use Complex on 723 Farm-to-Market 1554 at the meeting room from 6 to 8 p.m.
