Various solar projects have either been developed or are being developed throughout Lake County. Sites in the Lakeview area include the largest utility owned solar site in the State of Oregon! An additional site located directly west will be used not only for the gathering of solar power but for educational purposes for schools including higher education (college) and for public viewing. Obsidian/Black Cap Solar (project developer) additionally plans to work with local 4-H and FFA groups to host an area for animal projects in order to make these projects available to those with no prior place to accommodate an animal project!
Multiple sites in North Lake have received approval and are in the beginning stages of development (including seeking power purchase agreements).
