Solar Energy, Next Regulatory Project For Gage County Planning Commission

BEATRICE – Solar energy is a next frontier facing the Gage County Planning and Zoning Commission, as the body starts forming regulations for use of the renewable energy method.

The commission met Tuesday night, in the early stages of discussion over how residential and commercial solar projects will be regulated.

Gage County Planning and Zoning Administrator Lisa Wiegand says she doesn’t see the level of contentiousness that sometimes followed proposed wind energy projects.
