The County Board in Kendall County, Illinois awarded a solar field project to GRNE Solar on March 6, 2018. The solar field will be located on a 7.4-acre parcel just west of the Public Safety Center in Yorkville. Kendall County also entered a 25-year power purchase agreement and companion land lease agreement with GRNE to construct the two-megawatt solar field and sell the power to the county.
County Administrator Scott Koeppel said the power generated from the solar field will be used to power the Public Safety Center, courthouse, and Health and Human Services building.
