Duke Energy is the latest major utility to begin experimenting with solar power in Kentucky.
It was just two years ago that Louisville Gas and Electric opened the largest utility-scale solar array in the state.
Now, Duke Energy is testing solar power in Northern Kentucky. The utility unveiled two solar farms this week that combined, use approximately 29,000 solar panels.
The two facilities in Kenton and Grant counties are already creating enough energy to power about 1,500 homes, said Lee Freedman, Duke Energy spokesman.
