Kittitas County commissioners on Wednesday unanimously extended a moratorium on new commercial solar facilities for another six months.

Commissioners originally implemented the moratorium on commercial solar farms a year ago after turning down a proposed solar project near Kittitas. The goal of the moratorium was to give the county time to work out new rules.
