A solar energy company based out of Pennsylvania has proposed turning sod farms and open land in the Shoreham area into solar farms.
John F. Curtis, CEO of Green Energy Capital Partners, gave a presentation to the Shoreham Civic on Feb. 15 discussing the possibilities of utilizing the open land to develop these solar energy farms.
The solar panels on the farm would take in sunlight, convert it to electricity and distribute it locally through the Shoreham area. According to the report, Curtis said the company has been in talks with the owners of the DeLalio Sod Farm in Shoreham about the solar farms.
