Ducktown wins EPA top honor

The city of Ducktown, Tenn., which has a population of only 475 residents, has won a top environmental honor for its 28-kilovolt solar power installation. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency recognized Ducktown on Wednesday as its community action winner for 2014 for the photo voltaic panels installed on city property in Ducktown.

Ducktown was recognized among only nine projects in the country for the EPA Clean Air Excellence Award.
