More than 8,000 solar panels on County Route 67 near Watertown will go live this summer after National Grid lights them up.
A project manager at AES, the company that owns the solar panel site dubbed the "Brookside Solar Project," says it's just awaiting the go-ahead from National Grid.
"The project is fully built and it's just awaiting interconnection. So all 8,000 and change panels are built and involved and ready to go." said Ben Sufrin, project manager at AES.
The 2 mega watt project, which began as a part of the state's initiative to promote renewables, is enough power to provide electricity to 300 homes in the north country.
