Fairfield solar project gets DEP approval 

The company building multiple massive solar arrays throughout the state has received environmental approval for its project in Fairfield.

NextEra Energy Resources received approval April 11 from the Maine Department of Environmental Protection to move forward with the Fairfield project and is awaiting approval for a similar project in Clinton, two towns just outside of Waterville. The permit, under the Site Location of Development law, requires review of developments that may have a substantial effect upon the environment.
