UMES plans to plant 20-acre solar farm

On one of the fields where students learn about agriculture, the University of Maryland Eastern Shore will soon be planting a new kind of crop with a constantly renewable yield — 20 acres’ worth of photovoltaic panels, the largest solar farm in the state. According to Energy Current, the 2.1-megawatt system, to be built by Beltsville-based SunEdison, will generate electricity for the 4,100-student campus in Princess Anne when it’s finished, which is expected by the end of the year.
