Biggest solar farm in Idaho opens

A new solar farm is complete and while it is not the first one in Idaho, it is certainly the biggest.
The Grandview solar project is more than twice as big as the farm built in Kuna several months
ago and has the power to provide clean energy to thousands of Idahoans.

“This should power for a year 17,000 homes,” says Meir Cabaltera, project manager of Clēnera,
the company that built the farm.

The green power replaces energy from non-renewable fossil fuels such as coal.

”Across North America you see a real push for renewable energy because it's clean, it's good,
it's positive,” says Clēnera President Jason Ellsworth.
