New England’s biggest solar project is catching some rays

FARMINGTON, Maine (AP) — A solar energy farm comprising 490 acres is now online and connected to the regional power grid. Bowdoin College joined four schools from Massachusetts to help fund the massive array of solar panels. The $110 million, 76.5-megawatt solar farm is touted as the biggest in New England. NextEra is the developer of the solar project that will power close to 17,000 New England homes annually.
