Field Report from the Brockton Brightfield, Google Goes Solar

Last Thursday, the city of Brockton, Massachusetts inaugurated the largest solar power plant in New England. The 425-kilowatt (kW) solar array sits on a 100 year bed of coal ash — illustrating the emergence of renewable energy over old, dirty sources of fossil fuels.

We caught up with many of the lawmakers and renewable energy advocates who were celebrating the opening of the Brockton Brightfield. They spoke with Stephen Lacey about the importance of the solar installation for this industrial community and other communities like it around the country. Also in the podcast: Google again made headlines when the company announced it would install solar panels on its headquarters in Mountain View, California. Google is partnering with Sharp Solar and EI Solutions on the project. Ron Kenedi, Vice President of the Solar Energy Solutions Group at Sharp Electronics will speak with us about this great news for the industry. Inside Renewable Energy offers the latest in renewable energy news and information.
