PFLUGERVILLE, Texas — After nearly a decade without progress, a solar farm in Pflugerville could start providing energy soon.

Developers said the solar farm, which broke ground back in 2010, would be one of the biggest solar farms in the country.

But nothing was ever built.

Next Tuesday, the Pflugerville City Council will vote on an agreement with RRE Austin Solar. If it passes, the deadline to build the farm would be 2020.

Part of the agreement guarantees the company will give solar panels to schools, and pay the city $2.5 million over the next 30 years.
