Construction Begins on Georgetown Solar Farm

Posted:

GEORGETOWN, Del. (AP)- Delaware Electric Cooperative says construction is under way on a 20-acre solar energy farm near Georgetown.

The solar farm is expected to be in operation in May.

The co-op says 16,000 solar panels are being installed at the site on East Trap Pond Road. The project will eventually provide enough energy to power about 500 homes.

The construction is creating about 40 temporary jobs for the $14 million project. The utility says the project is not expected to impact rates immediately.
