Earlier this month, Meeker-based White River Electric Association opened a new solar farm. WREA Members will have opportunities to lease blocks of power from the Piceance Creek Solar Farm beginning in May 2019.
The lease program will be similar to the solar leasing program at the Meeker Solar Garden which is adjacent to Meeker High School.
This is the electric co-op’s third local renewable project. The 4 megawatt project is the largest of its kind in western Colorado.
