Babcock Ranch aims to be first solar-powered town in US

Development near Fort Myers in Florida, with more than 340,000 solar panels, aspires to be a model of sustainability.

Sustainable living is a phrase you hear a lot these days, but in one part of the US state of Florida, it is becoming a reality.

An entirely solar-powered town is taking shape and residents are already living a greener life.

When it is complete, Babcock Ranch will be one of the biggest communities of its kind in the world.

Al Jazeera’s Andy Gallacher reports from Florida.
