A town powered by solar energy fared well during Hurricane Irma. Babcock Ranch uses the solar panels to keep the lights on.
Rick Vorell, Babcock Ranch town ambassador said, “People that have been coming in you can see the stress when they talk about going through the storms and having to experience that, having to worry about the flooding, the storm surge.”
The sheer destruction of Hurricane Irma left behind thousands of homes and businesses in the dark.
Vorell says some are looking to Babcock Ranch as their shining solar solution. “I had a couple in this morning a nice couple from Sanibel and they said just that. That they lived through Hurricane Charley and they experienced Hurricane Irma and they didn’t want to do it again.”
