Carroll County’s 27 ½ acres of solar panels are up and running, and county staff say they are projected to save Carroll residents millions of dollars over the next 20 years.
At the solar array project ribbon-cutting on Tuesday, Nov. 20, Commissioner Dennis Frazier, R-District 3, said although it’s been a long road, he is happy about the progress the county has made in solar energy.
“It took a long time to get here,” he said after the ceremony at Hoods Mill Landfill, where 18 acres of solar modules are now set up. “There were a lot of obstacles. But we overcame them.”
