It takes a lot to power Pocono Raceway and a giant solar farm is helping do that, with the planet in mind. In this week's "Generations of Energy" - we visited the "Pocono Solar Project" in Monroe County. The 40-thousand panels provide electricity to more than 300 homes. Officials say they also cut back more than 31- hundred metric tons of carbon dioxide each year. They say the effort provides free electricity to the track and puts back about 80-percent on the grid.
