Delaware Electric Cooperative turned on its brand new 4-megawatt solar power array on Trap Pond Road in Georgetown yesterday.
The 20-acre field of solar panels cost $14 million and is the first such site in Delaware that is owned and operated by a utility.
There are two other solar arrays in the state.
One is the 10-megawatt Dover SUNpark and the other is the 12-megawatt Milford Solar Farm.
The solar project is part of the effort in Delaware to produce 25 percent of the state’s power from renewable sources by 2025.
