SHIAWASSEE COUNTY — Construction on the $250-million Assembly Solar Project — a 1,200-acre solar farm spread across parts of Hazelton and Venice townships — could begin in a matter of weeks, representatives from Ranger Power, the developer of the project, said Tuesday.

The company is in the final stages of obtaining additional construction permit approvals from the county drain commission, health department and road commission, and the state, according to Sergio Trevino, director of permitting at Ranger Power.
