The small mountain town of Walden, Colo. has installed solar panels in a pond – and it’s one of just a handful of floating solar arrays nationally.

With an average of 63 inches of snow annually and frigid winter temperatures, Walden is not the first place you’d think of for solar power. Time will tell if the $400,000 project can pay for itself.

The Denver Post has the story of Walden’s solar experiment and what’s been learned so far.
