Although they were not on the agenda for Tuesday’s meeting, several representatives of a proposed new solar energy project in the northeast corner of Dawson County were introduced to the Dawson County Commissioners Court and said they would be back at a future meeting to give more details about the proposed project.
    Working with Denmark-based GreenGo, Johnathan Burke, President/Development of GreenGo Energy U.S., Inc., said two proposed projects are being developed in northeast Dawson County.
    One project would be 250 megawatts, Burke said, and the other would be 400 megawatts for a total of 650 megawatts for both projects.
    Accompanying Burke at Tuesday’s meeting were David Beech, Senior Developer; C.J. Evans, Property Tax Expert; and Bob Kirby and Dennis Anderson, Project Developers.
    Kirby and Anderson first met with the Commissioners Court back in April and they estimated at that time the project could cover 3,000-4,000 acres in the O’Donnell area and generate a minimum of 200 megawatts of electricity.
    With Burke now estimating from 250 to 400 megawatts being produced by each solar project, those projects would be larger than four other solar energy projects either completed or currently under development in Dawson County.
