    Sanford, a small service center in Southern Maine, has successfully worked with a private developer to permit a 50 MW solar farm on surplus land owned by the City. This innovative public-private partnership will produce economic benefits for the City through energy savings, tax base expansion, & generation of non-property tax revenue. When completed, this project will be the largest solar generating facility in the State and currently the largest one in the country which is sited on an airport.
