Today's impressive photo in the Daily News of the now operating 100-acre Isle of Wight solar farm made me smile. The 19 megawatt facility will power approximately 4700 homes. Dominion Virginia Power now has three solar sites that power 14,000 homes.
These sites are also a big blessing to the three farming families who formerly grew strawberries and other crops. No more second-guessing the whims of Mother Nature since they lease their lands to Dominion and get guaranteed incomes now.
