Peterborough makes plans for state's largest solar array
The planned solar array would power the town’s wastewater treatment plant with excess power for most, if not all, of the town’s municipal buildings, according to former selectman Joe Byk, saving the town about $25,000 each year in energy costs.
Earlier this year the state Executive Council awarded Peterborough a $1.2 million grant for the $2.6 million project.
Borrego Solar, of Lowell, Mass., has agreed to take on the remaining costs and will install ground-mounted solar panels near the Peterborough Wastewater Treatment Plant.
The project is to be built next to the new wastewater treatment plant where the town’s old septic lagoons are being phased out.
The Peterborough solar array would become the state’s largest with approximately 1,174,280 kilowatt hours of energy to be generated each year.
