Siriwat Woranang, director of Ban Hansai School, led about 30 people representing two villages in Tambon Hansai in presenting the petition bearing 2,500 signatures to district chief Saowanit Suriyakul.
Siriwat said the residents of Moo 9 and Moo 10 opposed the Super Solar Energy Co Ltd power plant project.
The hybrid biomass/solar power plant has been proposed for a site straddling the two villages.
An environmental impact assessment conducted by Envi-Work Co Ltd has already been submitted to the province.
Saowanit promised to forward the petition to the provincial governor and assured the representatives there was no final decision yet on the project, for which public hearings were still being held.
