LOCKPORT, N.Y. (WIVB) - A local convenience store became the first to harness the power of the sun on Wednesday.
Crosby's in Lockport installed 200 solar panels to help fuel the store, becoming the first convenience store in WNY to use solar power.
"We're just really proud to be the first. Innovation has really been part of our history here, over 90 years into this business, and you don't do that without being innovative," said Paul Quebral, president of Crosby's.
The panels will generate enough energy to power about six homes for a year.
