North Carolina’s newest solar farm, developed by Carolina Solar Energy,officially opened Wednesday and will generate about 650KW of greenpower, which is enough to power about 60 urban homes. The electricitygenerated by the plant will be purchased by Progress Energy as part of a 20-year contract.

The5-acre facility houses 3,420 angled photovoltaic panels to generate thespecified power. The installers state that solar panels are expensiveand putting them on public display isn’t without risk. To furtherpromote the green theme the facility will make use of sheep to trim thegrass, which will replace conventional gas-powered machines from doingthe same at the cost of emissions.
