The Wadesboro Farm 4 LLC affiliate of Strata Solar LLC applied June 23 to the North Carolina Utilities Commission for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity authorizing construction of a 5-MW (c) solar facility in Anson County.

The facility is to be located on the east side of Brown Creek Church Road (also known as State Road 1641), north of the intersection with Rivers Street, and west of U.S. Route 52, in Wadesboro, Anson County.
