Texas A&M University unveiled their first solar farm project early last month. Worth $600 million, the university project is also the nation’s biggest solar farm for research and development purposes. Called the Center for Solar Energy, the 800 hectare solar destination will generate 50 megawatts, providing power for the university’s buildings, about 20,000 houses in the neighborhood, and the nearby U.S. Army base of Fort Hood.
