Emmitsburg’s mayor cut the ribbon Friday on the town’s newest green-minded project, a solar-powered wastewater treatment plant.

The $4.4 million solar array powers the $19.5 million plant, the Vigilant Hose Co. in Emmitsburg and many town-owned buildings and facilities.

Now I like this, I have been trying to get Middletown to do something like this too. The LED lights are a real no brainier, they cut down on the electrical use and requires much less labor for light replacements. I see where you can also set up clubs or cooperatives for residences. This would help everyone that lives in rental or property not well suited to roof top solar installation.

Good think and action, Emmitsburg.
