    I had a road trip for work today and on the way back noticed a solar array being set up! No photovoltaics yet (that I could see), but the frames mostly up. I'll be going back in 2 weeks, so expect they may have panels up by then!
    After I got home, looked it up and it is over 97 acres and will be 10 Megawatts. This adds to the 4 other solar farms in the area, each 10-20MW, and their local community college with a 500KW system that provides 90% of the campus's power.

    video driving past it linked here. Visibility is crap because there has been roughly 400,000 acres of wild fires across western Oregon this summer :rage:, so smoke and ash is hanging in the air
