Meet our roommates

Say hello to our new roommates at our E.W. Brown solar facility! A flock of Shetland and Katahdin sheep from nearby Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill are hard at work keeping the vegetation in check at Kentucky’s largest universal solar facility, located in Mercer County. 

All-natural lawn mowers

While the sheep are a nice addition to the serene landscape, they also play a practical role in keeping vegetation under control, as mowing grass under and around our solar panels is challenging and time-consuming.

Watch an informational video from KET about solar and our support of environmental efforts using Shetland sheep to mow grass at the solar farm.

Seasonal transitions

You can catch the sheep “mowing” grass during the spring and summer months, before they return to their warm winter home at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill later this year.

Meet Levi The Lamb

‘Ewe’ will love our new children’s book about a day-in-the-life of Levi The Lamb, one of the sheep at our E.W. Brown solar facility. Your purchase will directly benefit Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, the nonprofit organization in Mercer County that supplies our sheep.

Sheep return to their winter home

Our solar sheep have returned to their warm winter home at Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill. They’ll make their journey back to our solar array next spring and we’ll be sure to let you know when our all-natural lawn mowers return. In the meantime, if you’d like to support Shaker Village and give someone with a little one a great gift, you can purchase a copy of the children’s book, “Levi The Lamb’s Big Day”, in Shaker Village’s online gift shop.
