Solar pea patch grows at Greenbank Farm - The Whidbey Examiner

You wouldn't think Washington State would be the nation's hotbed of community solar. But it is!



A much larger field of solar-energy panels will soon greet visitors to the pastoral, rolling fields of Greenbank Farm.

The black panels affixed to metal frames are being installed next to the existing array owned by Island Community Solar, LLC, a Whidbey-based venture financed mostly by local investors. That array began energy production in June 2011.

Once completed, the installation will triple its current footprint and cover a full acre. The Port of Coupeville owns 151 acres of the farm.
