Solar farm to power former Savanna Army Depot

WQAD

A toppled light pole symbolizes decay at the former Savanna Army Depot, which closed its gates for good in 2000. But now, the neglected site is ready to shine again.

Emotional moments on Wednesday as Law announced plans to build a solar farm with his SolRwind business, which opened in 2008.  This will be an $8 million project. There are plans to create more than 200 jobs over the next three years.

“It has an economically rippling effect that goes out,” Law said. “That’s what we’re absolutely thrilled about.”  They’ll turn old parade grounds into a showplace for solar energy. Construction crews will install 3,500 panels. It will power the site while promoting other global projects in places like Haiti and Africa.
