WEB ONLY Solar power

A solar power facility with potential to bring renewable energy for use in Laramie could be coming to a city-owned ranch after an early stage of the project was approved at a City Council meeting Tuesday.

The Laramie City Council voted unanimously to approve a lease agreement and memorandum of understanding between the city and Boulevard Associates, LLC, Delaware — an affiliate of Next Era Energy — for the development of a solar energy center on the Monolith Ranch. The lease agreement became a matter of urgency at Tuesday’s meeting as Next Era is working on a power purchase proposal with Rocky Mountain Power due on Monday. The council’s approval allows the energy company to submit a proposal to prove site control that could move the project into the next stages.
