The company that has resubmitted an application to Pitkin County government for approval to build an 18,000-panel solar farm just south of Woody Creek is stressing the point that the project would not be located in that community.

“I’d like to clarify that the project is located between the towns of Aspen and Woody Creek, near the north end of Aspen-Pitkin County Airport. It is not located in Woody Creek,” wrote Conor Goodson, development manager for Renewable Energy Systems, the global entity that’s partnering with Holy Cross Energy and the Aspen Consolidated Sanitation District on the electricity-generation initiative.
