SUMMARY: About 200 residents attended a meeting about the Soul City Solar Project, with more than half expressing concerns. Attendees had 15 minutes to ask questions, which Apex Energy, the project’s parent company, then answered. The atmosphere was tense, partly because the air conditioning had been turned off for better hearing. Only about 100 people were able to enter, leaving many unable to voice their concerns. The project would use 4,000 to 6,000 hectares of private land between Raymond and Bolton. The Hinds County Zoning Board introduced the motion, with a vote set for June 17. Entergy, a potential energy buyer, confirmed no plans to buy power from the project.
