County Commissioners give green light to solar farm on 79th Street

Chuck Rodgers knows a thing or two about electricity. He worked for Xcel Energy for nearly four decades. For the last 36 years he's switched on a massive holiday light show in his front yard as a gift to the community and to raise money for Longmont Meals on Wheels. And on Tuesday, Dec. 6, the Boulder County Commissioners approved a five-megawatt, 24-acre solar farm on his property.
