Photos: Keystone Solar Project by Community Energy and GroSolar

An idea of the scale of the 30-acre Keystone Solar Project
I was jazzed to visit the Keystone Solar Project in Pennsylvania.  It's named after the "Keystone State" - and with 5 Megawatts of clean solar power saving thousands of tons of carbon it's a heck of a lot better for everyone than that nasty old Keystone XL pipeline!  Subscribers to this community shared solar project include Franklin & Marshall College, Eastern University, Juniata College, Marywood University, Drexel University, and Millersville University, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Clean Air Council.

Traditional ways of life continue just across the road
This was a relief for me, between witnessing mountaintop removal in West Virginia and fracking in Susquehanna County.

Check out this time-lapse video of the array's construction.
