A huge solar farm is in the works over in Methuen.

Ultimate Energy Source says it's planning to build an array of about 4,200 solar cells on 6 acres of land. The farm would generate 1 megawatt of power.

The company will sell the energy to National Grid.

"This solar project will help (communities) save on their utility costs for the next 20 years," the company said in a statement.

Ultimate Energy said it plans to have the farm up and running in about six months.

This headline implies that that the solar farm is "near" Reading. I would not call a city (Methuen) that is 16 miles or so away as "near" Reading. In any event, this is only relevant to Reading if RMLD is able to purchase power from this solar farm.
