Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt has been in talks with Biden administration officials in recent days about speeding the permitting of a new Enel North America solar plant near Pryor, a project that the governor says will be the largest economic development investment in state history.

Under the project, the state has approved $180 million in incentives to the company to build the plant in northeast Oklahoma but Enel would first have to spend at least $1.8 billion and hire 1,400 employees to receive the incentives reported the Oklahoman.

Stitt discuss the project during a Friday news conference at the state capitol.
