Marshall, MN (KMHL)  The Lyon County Board of Commissioners approved a conditional use permit for a proposed one-megawatt solar farm east of Balaton.  The project, spearheaded by United Renewable Energy, aims to install nearly 4,000 solar panels on about 8.5 acres of land just east of Balaton.  The power generated by the solar array would be sold to Xcel Energy and connected to the existing Xcel power lines in the area of the project and routed to the Lake Yankton substation along Lyon County Road 5.
