The Salt Creek Solar Project – a utility scale solar farm proposed by Ranger Power within the city limits of Lincoln – will have a significant positive economic impact on Lincoln and Lancaster County, totaling a $230 million investment.
The project will result in a significant increase in household earnings through the creation of more than 300 jobs during construction and millions in construction dollars being spent in Lancaster County. The project will also generate significant tax revenue that will help fund local schools, public safety like police and fire, as well as other Lincoln and Lancaster County services and infrastructure.
A strong partnership with local residents is key, which is why Ranger Power has taken a community-first approach by engaging residents through face-to-face neighborhood outreach, community meetings, and forums. Ranger Power is working closely with landowners, neighbors and local residents, regularly meeting with stakeholders to hear their thoughts and answer questions.
A special use permit for the project will be submitted to the Lincoln/ Lancaster County Planning Commission for their approval. You can help support solar energy investment and jobs throughout Nebraska and this project by sending a message of support to the Planning Commission.
