Sibley, Iowa — Osceola County appears to be big into alternative or “green” energy. Several wind turbines have dotted the Osceola County countryside for several years. Now the environment is going to create electrical power in another way.
A “solar park” is going to built north of Sibley near Hawkeye Point — financed partially through the member-owners of Osceola Electric Cooperative.
Osceola County Economic Development Director Mike Earll tells us more.
Earll says location was important to the REC.
The Sterler Solar Park cost is estimated at $480,000, and construction is slated to begin in April.
