MASON CITY, Iowa – FRC in Mason City is adding new solar panels that they hope will make the company more energy efficient.
Mike Bell, one of the employees at Sybac Solar, says these panels have the ability to power 150 homes. He tells us this is the largest solar panel group in the state right now, but it may not be that way for very long.
“To my knowledge, this is the largest solar panel setup in Iowa at the time,” Bell says. “There is something else in the works that is going to bigger.”
There are just over 1,500 panels that produce 310 watts and cover an area of about an acre and a half on the FRC property
