Ohio’s largest solar project to be finished by year’s end

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — A new solar field set to become Ohio’s largest installation is on track to open by the end of the year.

The 20-megawatt solar field in Bowling Green in northwestern Ohio will surpass the 12-megawatt Wyandot Solar Farm in the north-central part of the state.

Bowling Green officials say about one-third of the city’s energy will come from renewable sources once the solar project in complete.

The Blade (http://bit.ly/2bSELf5 ) newspaper in Toledo reports that percentage is 1.5 percent across the state.

The Bowling Green solar field is the largest within an 80-megawatt project that will be spread across 26 sites that are mostly in Ohio.
