"Brooklyn solar farm work to start soon"

Construction on a four-megawatt solar farm planned for the closed Brooklyn landfill should begin in September, with the first solar panels generating electricity in January, said Mike Foley, director of the Cuyahoga County Department of Sustainability.

Brooklyn City Council took a necessary step toward the farm last week when it approved a nonexclusive franchise agreement to allow Cleveland Public Power to extend its service to the Brooklyn landfill, Brooklyn Mayor Katie Gallagher said.

The line extension will allow the electricity generated by the solar farm to make its way onto the grid.

The line also will enableBrooklyn to buy electricity for its city-owned buildings from Cleveland Public Power and give residents of Brooklyn who live in the corridor of the extended power line the chance to buy their electricity from CPP instead of FirstEnergy.
