Comments Off on 400 MW Solar Farm Coming to Southeast

As sunny as the southeastern U.S. is, solar power development hasn’t taken off as quickly as you’d think.  That will change dramatically when a new 400 MW solar farm is built in one of three states:  Florida, Georgia or North Carolina.  The huge project could potentially be the world’s largest when it’s completed.  The current largest is an 80 MW solar plant in Ontario, Canada, but many large projects are in the planning or construction stages.

Here’s what $30 million gets you if you’re in the market for a new radar… photo: Lockheed Martin Remember a little while back when the US Air Force was objecting to the Shepherds Flat wind farm in Oregon because it could interfere with its radar systems.

Photo via DVice In 1851, the Great Exhibition in the Crystal Palace started the boom in World’s Fairs as ” Great Britain made clear to the world its role as industrial leader .” Shanghai is pretty much like that, with the nations of the world putting their best foot forward to impress.
