The Geary County Commission unanimously voted to approve a conditional use permit that would allow a substation and solar array on property located on Hwy 57, south of Grandview Plaza, under certain conditions.

Those conditions are that the company, Flint Hills Rural Electric, will not add on to the solar array unless it is approved by the county commission, will abide by current and future EPA environmental standards, will provide an appropriate barrier and any electricity produced will stay in the service area.
