LAKE HAVASU CITY -- Two huge solar projects got the green light Monday from Mohave County supervisors.
The board approved Spanish-based Albiasa's 200 megawatt solar farm on a three-square-mile parcel of land in located about 15 miles from Kingman.
Those opposed said they were concerned about location, depletion of natural resources needed to operate the plant, pollution tied to energy production as well as the possibility of decreased home values.
Albiasa said the project would bring in 1,000 construction jobs and 100 permanent position.
The board also approved a second solar project. Hualapai Valley Solar's 340 megawatt plant would be located on a privately owned 4,000-acre parcel 25 miles north of Kingman.
