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.

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.

'Ewe-phoria' returns for another season!

The sheep have returned for the third consecutive year. Since 2020, the flock has grown to more than 100 sheep who will graze around the 44,000 solar panels situated on 50 acres at the plant site.

Thanks to a partnership with nearby Shaker Village of Pleasant Hill, the sheep are back for the season to keep the facility's vegetation in check, while farmers from Shaker Village manage the flock. 

Viewers can catch the sheep "mowing" grass live during the spring and summer months before they return to their warm winter home at Shaker Village later this year.
