Greensboro NC may be home to new Solar Farm

Solar Farms are beginning to  pop up all over. Orlando Utilities Commission is currently building a small one near their coal and gas fired power plant in east Orange County Fl.

NASA is building a farm on it's property at Cape Kennedy, Fl

Here's mention of a quite large farm to be built possibly in Greensboro NC by a Melbourne Fl company.

Although we've always hoped for a massive switch from current methods of power to more  sustainable methods, we are buoyed to see the continued movement toward sustainable power.


The Associated Press

A Florida-based solar power company has picked a North Carolina county as a finalist for a 4,000 acre solar farm expected to create hundreds of jobs.
The News & Record of Greensboro reports Sunday that a landfill and a prison farm in Guilford County are possible candidates for the ambitious solar farm project.
National Solar Power of Melbourne, Fla., has named the North Carolina county among seven finalists for its $1.4 billion solar project. Other contenders are in Georgia and Florida.
The company says it plans to build a 400-megawatt solar plant. It would be made up of 20 separate 200-acre solar farms, which could make enough power for about 32,000 homes.
The company expects 400 people will be needed for construction, and the completed plant will employ 120.

Conservastore.com feels solar farms are important largely because all power can be produced in the place the panels reside so their is no need for sourcing of energies from abroad
