What's being called the midwest's largest solar energy project was the setting for a high-profile ceremony in Upper Sandusky Ohio today. The project is massive, and it just began generating power a few months ago. Diana Drysdale is "vice president for renewables" at PSEG, the company that owns the project. She talked with Ohio Public Radio's Bill Cohen about just how big it is.
Drysdale says her company picked Ohio for its huge solar energy project because there's a growing market here for alternative energy these days. She credits a new Ohio law that requires electric companies to get a growing chunk of their energy from solar, wind, and other "green" sources. The solar energy from this new project in Upper Sandusky is being sold to American Electric Power.
