American Canyon Solar Farm in Napa County.

As California moves towards electrifying cars and homes, Mendocino County may soon become the site of two small solar projects. Sonoma Clean Power, a community choice aggregator, is working with a developer to plan a solar generation and storage site on Redemeyer Road in Ukiah and a 20-acre solar farm just south of Laytonville. The projects are in the early stages of development, but may be up and running by late next year or early 2025.
