Pittsboro approves plans for Chatham Park solar farm

Pittsboro, NC – At their Monday evening town board meeting, the Pittsboro Town Board unanimously approved a site plan for a new 178 acre solar farm that will be the largest in the state. Located east of Pittsboro off of Pittsboro-Moncure Road, the Chatham Park Solar Farm is being developed by Strata Solar, LLC which moved its headquarters to Chatham County last year. Strata plans to sell the electricity generated to the N.C. Electric Membership Corp., one of the nation’s largest rural electric cooperative organizations with nearly 1 million electricity customers statewide.
