The Ohio Power Siting Board on Feb. 15 approved the construction of two utility-scale solar projects in Brown and Hardin Counties.

The projects are the first of their kind reviewed by the board, according to a Feb. 15 news release, and will be the largest solar farms in Ohio once constructed. The approved projects are the 125-MW Hillcrest solar project owned by Blue Planet Renewable Energy LLC, and the 150-MW Hardin solar facility owned by Invenergy Solar Development LLC, a subsidiary of Invenergy LLC.

In a separate decision, the siting board also approved AES Ohio Generation LLC's request to transfer certificates issued for the Tait Electric Generating Station in Montgomery County, as well as associated natural gas pipeline assets to Tait Electric Generating Station LLC.
