Hurricane Matthew: Lake Worth cancels solar farm event

solar-energy-panelsLAKE WORTH — The city has canceled Tuesday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony for its new solar energy farm after touring the site following Hurricane Matthew’s march into Palm Beach County.

The unveiling will be rescheduled in the coming months, the city said.

For months, Lake Worth officials have been touting the $2 million project, on the site  of an old 63-acre landfill off Washington Avenue, just a few blocks west of South Dixie Highway on the south end of the city.

The 14-acre solar energy field, the city said, can generate enough clean energy to power more than 250 homes and reduce carbon emissions by 4 million pounds — the equivalent of taking 400 cars off the roads.
