(Columbus) – The Ohio Power Siting Board (OPSB) will hold a local public hearing regarding Dodson Creek Solar, LLC’s proposal to construct a 117 megawatt solar‑powered electric generation facility in Hamer and Dodson townships in Highland County. The hearing is scheduled for:

Nov. 10, 2021, at 5 p.m. 
Wharton Building 
Highland County Fairgrounds 
604 John Street 
Hillsboro, Ohio 45133

The purpose of the local public hearing is to allow individuals who are not parties to the case to provide sworn testimony regarding the proposed facility. Testimony will be limited to five minutes per witness, and the hearing transcript will become part of the case record considered by the OPSB.

Witnesses will register when they arrive at the hearing and will testify in the order in which they register. If a witness wishes to supplement their testimony with an exhibit, a copy of the document should be provided to the administrative law judge during the hearing.

Consistent with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and the May 17, 2021 Ohio Department of Health order, unless otherwise specified by the facility, individuals who are not fully vaccinated should plan to wear a face covering and socially distance.

The Dodson Creek Solar project would consist of solar panel arrays and associated facilities located on approximately 1,429 acres. Included in the project would be electrical collection lines, inverters, a substation and switchyard, a generation interconnect line, weather stations, access roads, and perimeter fencing.
