AMERICAN FALLS — The Power County Planning and Zoning Board approved a special-use permit Tuesday night for a 300 megawatt solar farm on 6,500 acres of range land near this city.

Representatives with the applicant, NextEra Energy Resources based in Juno Beach, Florida, said the full build-out of the planned Moon Crater Solar and Storage Project will represent a roughly $500 million investment.
