Yamhill County leaders are working to strike a balance for developing potential solar facilities in the county — where there is a lot of rich Oregon farmland. Four projects (not in Energy Facility Siting Council jurisdiction) have already been built. Other projects will likely stay on hold until leaders decide how solar can work best for their communities.
