(MONROE COUNTY) - An energy cooperative's plan to build a solar farm west of Ellettsville in Monroe County is on hold as it waits for officials to work out a zoning issue.

The Herald-Times reports Hoosier Energy's plans are part of an effort to construct 10 one-megawatt solar arrays throughout southern Indiana and southeast Illinois.

The Monroe County Plan Commission is looking at creating a new solar farm zoning definition because of a backlash from neighboring residents who oppose rezoning the farm land for commercial or light industrial uses. The county is considering a new zoning classification for renewable energy sites.
