Winthrop's Community Solar Project is fully funded and construction has begun.
The grassy site for the 120-module system is on town property next to the sewage treatment ponds, and is visible from the East County Road.
Over the last six weeks, 48 Okanogan County Electric Co-op members invested a total of $220,000 in the 22,800-watt solar electric system.
