Some of the 90 solar panels that have been erected at Timothy Ridgely's 2,700-acre southeastern Illinois farm in Parkersburg, Ill. Ridgley, 70, recently installed the panels where he grows corn, soybeans and wheat and his son raises beef cattle after being approved for a federal grant. Last year he installed 72 panels with a state grant, cutting his $5,500-a-year electric bill by about 40 percent. Now he hopes to be 100 percent self-sufficient.
