News of construction of Colby’s nine-acre solar farm, just underway, caught the attention of media outlets around the country. “Electrical work for the project will be done between now and August,” Kevin Bright, Colby’s sustainability coordinator, told the Portland Press Herald May 4,”and structures that hold the solar panels will be installed sometime after that.” WABI-TV also covered the story, as did the Morning Sentinel. On May 5 Bright also talked with Maine Public Radio, which posted an Associated Press story that ran in hundreds of outlets in a variety of media.
