Eastern Shore Solar LLC is hoping to build a solar power farm on nearly a thousand acres near Oak Hall in Accomack County.

The company has applied for a permit from County Planning Development.

If approved the project would generate around 80 megawatts of electricity using ground-mounted solar panels.

This would be the equivalent of a small power plant.

A hearing on the facility is set for December 10th at the Metompkin Elementary School in Parksley.
