Mid-Michigan is now home to the biggest solar carport array in North America.

Michigan State University held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the 700,000 square foot project Thursday.

It includes five different parking lots across campus covered by solar panels.

The school says 18 percent of it's electrical power will come from those arrays during peak hours.
