With resident and U.S. Sen. Maggie Hassan on hand, the town cut the ribbon and turned on a 216-panel solar array during a ceremony Friday.
The array was installed by ReVision Energy at the water and sewer plant and is expected to generate nearly 100 percent of the wastewater treatment plant’s electric load, water and sewer commissioner Kathy Smith said. The array will produce approximately roughly 93,000 kilowatt hours of clean energy each year, which is equivalent to offsetting nearly 98,000 pounds of carbon pollution or the emissions from 5,000 gallons of gas.
