Area solar activity heats up; Energy companies eye sites near Christmas Valley
While government bureaucracy continues to hold up a proposed solar facility at a former military radar base in Christmas Valley, the proposal has attracted two developers to try and cash in on the solar power potential on other sites just south of the Deschutes County line, according to state and local officials.

Solar energy,(PHOTOVOLTAIC)on a commercial scale, makes sense in North Lake County.
With the existence of two, high transmission lines that intersect valley, along with the capacitor station at Sand Springs, this the all to obvious location.
The Fort Rock/Christmas Valley area is graced with over 335 days of sun per year: why not let some of the local hay farmers get in on this emerging green industry of solar farming? Forty acres of land sits idle, per average quarter mile pivot. If just one corner is "planted" in photovoltaic, enough "juice" cold be made to run not only the pivot and pump, but also create the energy potential to farm the hay.
If we wait around for the military to "Decider" where to go on this, it will never get done. That's why it is up to "us" t grap the goat by it's horn's and "giter done"!
