A company that deals in solar power is coming to Deerfield.
Speed Solar was green-lighted to purchase 617 South Main St., the former site of Jamboree Foods grocery store, when the Deerfield Village Board approved a conditional use permit for the site on July 23.
The permit allows “for the business and sales offices, education, demonstration, warehousing, wholesaling and light assembly of solar energy equipment plus the generation and sale of photovoltaic electrical power.”
Scott Tebon, a member of the Village Board and chair of the village’s Planning Commission, said Cal Couillard, president of Speed Solar, planned to purchase the property by the end of July.
“We [the planning commission] thought it would be nothing but a good thing for that site, to turn it around,” Tebon said.
Speed Solar’s Facebook page says it makes “solar installations easy and more affordable.”
The company did not respond to a request for comment.
