‘Shared solar’ program could benefit 1,500 households

NEXAMP photo A Nexamp solar farm in Rockford, Ill. This farm produces about 2.6 megawatts of energy, a little less than the 3 megawatts that will be produced by the farms in Naalehu and Kalaoa.

As many as 1,500 Big Island households could receive credits to lower their energy bills through an effort to develop solar installations in Naalehu and North Kona.
