An energy company is proposing to build an approximately 25-acre solar power project near Unity in southern Baker County. The proposed site is north of the intersection of Highways 26 and 245, about a mile north of Unity.

A community meeting has been scheduled for Nov. 29 at 6 p.m. at the Unity Community Hall, County Commissioner Mark Bennett said.

The meeting is not a public hearing, but officials from the company will answer questions. If the company pursues the project, it will have to apply through the Planning Department. Holly Kerns, the county’s planning director, will also attend the Nov. 29 meeting.
