On a 17,000-acre land about 15 miles northeast of Fort Myers, Florida, a community that wants to be the nation’s greenest city. With more than 340,000 solar panels in place, Babcock Ranch aims to be the first town in the U.S. powered solely by solar energy. Residents will live in energy-efficient homes and use self-driving electric shuttles to get around.
