30.2 - Good News: solar farm in Plains, GA

Good News: solar farm in Plains, GA

Next up, it may be a little thing in the grand scheme, but still it's worth noting.

Jimmy Carter and family leased leased 10 acres of land in Plains, Georgia and arranged to put in a solar farm which is now ready to provide about 1.3 MW of power every year - more than half the electricity needs of the whole town. They followed that up by having 324 solar panels installed on the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, which will provide about seven percent of the library's power.

A little historical footnote: In 1979, then-President Jimmy Carter installed 32 solar panels on the White House to provide some of the hot water for the building. Ronald Reagan had them removed.
