The Teanaway Solar Reserve LLC hasn’t given up on building one of the largest solar-power arrays in the nation four miles northeast of Cle Elum in the Teanaway River valley.

The company proposed the project in mid-2009 and recently reaffirmed its commitment to pursue the construction and operation of the solar farm. It’s estimated to have a capacity of generating up to 75 megawatts from 400,000 photovoltaic panels spread on 477 acres within a 982-acre parcel owned by American Forest Land Co.
