County commissioners said Tuesday they want more discussion on a proposal for a 1,200 acre solar farm in Able Springs before taking any action. Enel Green Power North America wants to develop the farm and build batteries to store energy between Highway 34 and State Highway 429 near the northern county line. The company asked for a 70 percent abatement for part of the taxes on the land’s assessed value over 15 years.

“We need this 381 [abatement] agreement before we can move forward,” Clark Bixler, development manager, told commissioners.
