City of Fremont Offering Tours of Solar Farm and Power Plant

FREMONT – If you’ve never seen a solar farm up close and personal, your chance is here. The City of Fremont is holding an open house and guided tours at two of Fremont’s electrical production sources.

The Lon D. Wright Power Plant and Solar Farm number 1 will be open to the public on Tuesday, June 5th at 4:00PM. Tours of both locations will be given, and residents will be able to see Fremont’s first community solar project.

In March, the City Council approved the bid to build Solar Farm #2. GenPro Energy Solutions, the same contractor that built Solar Farm #1, will build the second solar farm at the city well field south of Fremont, just off Old Highway 275.
