Rockford community solar farm will add more solar energy to the local grid when it begins operation in fall 2021. The farm will feature more than 6,600 solar panels with 2.6 megawatts of solar generation capacity. Nexamp, a community solar developer, is partnering with ComEd and the program is called ComEd.com/GiveARay.
