Luther College has won approval from the Decorah City Council of its site plan for a solar energy project on Pole Line Road.
The school is planning to install 1,250 solar energy panels on two acres of an 8.5 acre piece of property along Pole Line Road, next to the Dr. Pepper bottling company plant. The energy generated by the panels would be equal to the electricity consumed by all of Luther's Baker Village, with the exception of the Commons building.
