"1.3 megawatts of energy from a solar farm"

Another solar farm is coming to Franklin. Along with the current installation at Mount St Mary's Abbey, the Tri-County Regional Voc Tech is getting into solar.

Tri-County reached a deal with SunEdison Inc., a global company specializing in solar power, that will save it an estimated $1.8 million on energy costs over the next two decades. 
After the contract expires, it can renew the contract or ask SunEdison to remove the panels.
The installation will be built atop four acres of grounds behind the school, with construction beginning in the spring or summer of 2014. 
Power generated from the ground-mounted panels will account for roughly 85 percent of the school’s overall energy use, according to John Roy, Tri-County’s business administrator.
