Guilford County Finalist for Solar Farm

Guilford County is in the running for a massive solar power project.

National Solar Power of Melbourne, Florida has selected seven finalists for what it says will be the “world’s largest solar farm” – and Guilford County is on the list.  Gail Vadia is a spokeswoman for the Greensboro Partnership – a community and economic development organization in Guilford County. She says National Solar Power has already been in contact with land-owners.

Gail Vadia:  "We are not aware of which landowners those are, but we do hope to have a meeting with the company in the next week or so and learn more about that side of things."

The 1.4-billion dollar project will include twenty, 200-acre solar farms. Besides a good supply of un-developed land, National Solar Power is also looking for community and government support with tax incentives
