Pinal supervisors to hear case for controversial energy plant

By Kelly Fisher | Casa Grande Dispatch

FLORENCE — A Florida-based power company could get a green light from the Pinal County Board of Supervisors to move forward with a solar power and battery-storage plant that earlier unhinged nearby residents.

But as it turns out, comments at a previous Planning and Zoning Commission meeting indicated there may not be a battle to the end from at least a few of the longtime opponents of the venture.

Pinal Central Energy Center, a subsidiary of Florida’s NextEra Energy Resources, is slated for construction on a 257-acre site at State Route 287 and Sunshine Boulevard, between Casa Grande and Coolidge, if a zone change and planned area development are approved at the board’s Wednesday morning meeting.
