LEE — A proposed 18-acre array of solar panels may soon supply renewable energy to the Berkshires, following a 3-2 vote by the Planning Board.

The 5-megawatt solar energy facility would sit on a 98-acre lot of land just south of Route 20 and northwest of Goose Pond, specifically on an elevated, fenced-off portion of the lot.

The cost to build is expected to be $10 million, according to the proposal presented by Cypress Creek Renewables based out of Santa Monica, California.
