The Long Island Solar Farm

In November 2011, a utility-scale solar array became operational in the most unlikely of places: at Brookhaven National Laboratory on densely populated Long Island, New York. Now the largest utility-scale solar power plant in the eastern United States, the Long Island Solar Farm is a remarkable success story whereby very different interest groups capitalized on unusual circumstances to develop a mutually beneficial source of renewable energy.
