FREDONIA — City officals are reviewing a “compelling argument” to install a $4.4 million solar farm, the Wilson County Citizen reported.

For the last five months officials have looked at options presented by Scott Shreve, an energy consultant with the Texas-based  Priority Power.

City Administrator Wesley Young said the city would get up to 60% back from the government as a “green” initiative rebate.
