Despite numerous qualms raised during the public hearing on the Sunshine Annexation, which aims to annex a Solar energy farm slated for construction along State Route 287 and Sunshine Boulevard, the city might still push forward.

Zoning for the photovoltaic solar and battery-storage plant, owned by Pinal Central Energy, a subsidiary of the Florida-based NextEra Energy, was approved by the Pinal County Board of Supervisors in July.

The proposed 257-acre plant would be located just outside the gateway entrance to Coolidge, which according to City Manager Rick Miller could cause potential problems for the city as it grows.
