Antioch students boost solar power in Keene
Dubbed the Monadnock Community Solar Initiative the project aims to find local investors to build a solar array that area residents and businesses could use for their electricity needs.
“It’s really booming in Colorado. They call it solar gardens out there,” Brunner said. “We think this is the first community solar project in the Monadnock region.”
“We’re looking for anyone in the community that wants to be involved. It will take an investment in either time, energy or money. We want it to be something that everything will support.”
Community solar projects help the country move toward energy independence, reduce emissions and pollutants and are a way to fight rising fuel costs, Brunner said.
“There’s an educational component to just to show people there are other ways to get it. You don’t have to be independently wealthy to get it on your roof,” Brunner said.
The Antioch team plans to release an initial feasibility study for the project in mid-March with suggested locations.
People interested in the project are can reach Kondos at email@example.com.
