A huge solar project could be coming to southern Grundy County.

The Grundy County Tax Committee this week heard about the project from Nancy Norton with the Grundy Economic Development Council.

Norton also had this to say.

The 300 megawatt project will produce enough clean energy to power around 65,000 homes.

Norton said this will be a great benefit to the communities of Dwight and Gardner.

Over 200 jobs will be created during the construction period and $11 million in tax revenue could be generated in the first ten years of operations.

No action was taken on the potential project and more could be discussed in the future.
