Solar farm a bright spot

I’m very pleased to read that a very large (81,000 panels) solar panel farm is being planned near the town of Lind, Washington. I was further delighted to see that a number of Avista’s large customers had named a preference for solar energy so Avista has committed to buying the electricity from the solar farm and selling it to 40 to 80 large commercial and industrial customers.

I’m hoping that Mayor Condon and business leaders of Spokane will recognize the economic value of this green energy and opt to welcome more of it to our area. Now is the time!
