A 500-kilowatt solar array that will power up to 100 homes opened up outside of Joseph.

After turning on the power at the Prairie Creek solar project, a tour was given of the City of Joseph’s Sewer and Wastewater Treatment’s 100-kilowatt array that will offset approximately 90 percent of the facility’s power usage.
