ONTARIO – The first commercial solar project in Ontario is in the works, and comes with the hope of expanding access to renewable energy.

The project, which would cost around $4.5 million, involves 15 acres of land leased from the City of Ontario in the northwest part of the city near highway 201. 

Ryan Sheehy, president of Fleet Development, the Enterprise-based company developing the project, said that the solar farm is still in the design phase, and the company is working to get it approved by the Oregon Community Solar Program.
