As we go to press, residents of the Neenach and Fairmont areas of the Western Antelope Valley are being alerted that a meeting is planned Thursday, Jan. 20 by the Fairmont Town Council at the WeeVill Market to listen to three or four solar companies seeking to build facilities in their region. The meeting starts at 6:30 p.m.

This month, two appeals were filed with the Los Angeles County Planning Department to halt a conditional use permit granted to NRG Solar in December.

On Wednesday, Jan. 19 it was reported that the Antelope Acres Town Council held a meeting to hear from White Ranch Wind which is reportedly seeking to install a 1,000 acre solar and wind power facility.

The Fairmont Council reports its WeeVill Market meeting (18348 West Avenue D, off Highway 138, Lancaster, CA 93536) will hear from Nate Parker of the Wild Flower Green Energy Farm Project and two other solar companies.

Ray Kelley of NRG Solar’s Alpine Solar Project, wants a meeting with the town council and the citizens about the appeal that was filed against his project, according to the Fairmont agenda.
