LI solar farm offers research bonus
The massive solar farm planned at Brookhaven National Laboratory is now more than halfway complete, and officials say the project could send electricity to the grid by October. As the arrays go up on 137 once-wooded acres, Brookhaven scientists are mapping out a detailed research agenda to measure the performance and environmental footprint of what will be the largest solar farm in the Northeast.
