OPSB reschedules adjudicatory hearing for Nestlewood Solar Farm

COLUMBUS, OHIO (March 20, 2019) – The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) has rescheduled the adjudicatory hearing regarding Nestlewood Solar I LLC’s application to construct a solar-powered electric generation facility in Brown and Clermont counties. The adjudicatory hearing, previously set to begin on June 10, 2019, is now scheduled as follows:

June 13, 2019, at 10 a.m.
180 East Broad Street
Hearing Room 11-D
Columbus, Ohio 43215-3793

The purpose of the adjudicatory hearing is to allow formal parties to the case to present pre-filed testimony and evidence, and to cross-examine other parties’ witnesses. The OPSB rescheduled the adjudicatory hearing in response to a motion filed by Nestlewood Solar.

The change will not affect the local public hearing scheduled for May 31, 2019, at 6 p.m. at Hamersville Elementary and Middle School, 1950 State Route 125, in Hamersville, Ohio 45130. The purpose of the local public hearing is to allow interested persons, who are not parties to the case, to provide testimony regarding the project.

The proposed Nestlewood Solar Farm would be located within an area of approximately 610 acres of land in Clark Township in Brown County and Tate Township in Clermont County. The facility would consist of multiple arrays of solar photovoltaic panels with a combined generating capacity of up to 80 megawatts.
