Northeast's largest solar farm planned at Brookhaven National Laboratory

A 200-acre solar farm planned by BP Solar at Long Island's Brookhaven National Laboratory could be the largest of its kind in the Northeast. The energy company BP Solar is planning to build the equivalent of a 32-megawatt generator, enough to power 4,500 homes, Newsday reports.  The U.S. Department of Energy, which operates the lab, will host the clean-energy project in exchange for research opportunities.
