Mark Center Solar Project, LLC on Oct. 23 filed a pre-application notification letter with the Ohio Power Siting Board, regarding its proposed Mark Center Solar Project, a solar-powered generation facility to be located in Mark Township, Defiance County, Ohio.
The facility would be sited on about 700 acres and have a maximum total generating capacity of up to 110 MW. The facility is intended to fill the need for a more diverse national energy portfolio that would include a higher percentage of energy generated through the use of renewable resources, Mark Center added.
Construction is anticipated to begin by 3Q22, resulting in commercial operations in June 2023, Mark Center said.
