ELLENSBURG -- Kittitas County commissioners have approved construction and operation plans for a $350 million solar-power farm near Cle Elum.
The Daily Record of Ellensburg reports that the decision Tuesday clears the way for detailed design and construction planning for the 400,000-panel Teanaway Solar Reserve.
It received a permit in August despite objections from environmentalists.
Developers say the project could generate enough electricity to power about 45,000 homes.
