Clean Energy is Now Flowing

Now, as you read this, the Middle Island Solar Farm is operating at full capacity, and generating 19.6 MW of electricity from the Mastic, Long Island location. To put it on a more relatable scale, 19.6 MW of electricity is equivalent to powering roughly 3800 Long Island homes for a year.
