A former dairy farm in Norwich has been officially reintroduced as a provider of solar energy for municipal utilities served by the Connecticut Municipal Electric Energy Cooperative.

City and state officials were on hand Wednesday for the formal opening of Mountain Ash Solar Farm, which is home to the state’s largest solar and energy storage system.

The 15-acre plot was formerly home to a dairy farm operated by seven generations of the Stott family. But now there are more than 15,000 solar panels on the land that are expected to produce enough electricity over the next two decades to power more than 8,400 homes for a year.

The solar farm also features a 4.7-megawatt energy storage system that collects and holds the electricity produced by the panels.
