The Solar Expansion Project is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) of 2009. In March 2009, the Forest was given $400,000 to add 250 additional solar panels to a facility that already had 50 previously installed. D.J. Group from Beverly, Ohio was awarded the contract.

    An encouraging sign. Rural America is where solar can make the largest impact proportionately. And eventually, it can ease grid pressures and blackouts nationwide.

    It’s great that these funds are available for such amazing work. Going solar makes so much sense for our world.

    It’s great to see that they are taking the initiative to conserve energy and go green with the installation of solar panels. Well done to the DJ group!

    This is beautiful to look at! Just imagine if we could work on the cost and availability of solar panels to make them attractive to high sun areas like California and Arizona, and what this would do to our dependence on oil. Plus, they look wonderful lol.

    The solar power has an expensive, but long-term installation is very profitable. These plans are very positive
