Cincinnati plans to build nation’s largest solar array

When Cincinnati’s new solar array is completed about 40 miles east of downtown, it will likely reduce the region's carbon emissions by 158,000 tons annually, or the annual equivalent of removing 30,000 cars from the road or planting 2.4 million trees.

The 100-megawatt installation will cover about 1,000 acres and have more than 310,000 solar panels, transitioning up to 30% of the city's power from fossil to renewable fuels, according to Mayor John Cranley.

The proposed project is also seen as an economic boon because it will create jobs in the area.
