Elite Southwest Holdings will develop a solar project in Fort Mohave following separate actions at the April 6th Mohave County Board of Supervisors meeting.  
The board voted in support of rezoning and a general plan amendment required for the 32MW facility that will provide power for the Mohave Electric Cooperative. 
Applicant Brandon Butcher said about 84,000 solar panels will be spread over about 130 acres on a 220-acre parcel south of Joy Lane and west of Ashley Street. 
Dissenting votes were based upon opposition expressed by property owners in the area.  
Butcher told supervisors another array west of the site provides a buffer there and that a 90-acre buffer provides distance from residences to the south. 
He said site preparation soon will be underway and that operation of the solar facility should be underway before the end of this year.
