New Hampshire Finally Gets Serious about Solar

On a warm November morning about 200 people gathered in the small town of Peterborough, NH to officially inaugurate the state’s largest PV solar array.  The almost 1-MW project (942kW) was initiated by Borrego Solar, approved by the town by unanimous vote in July 2014, and completed by SunEdison, which purchased the project in 2015.

The energy generated by the array will meet 100 percent of the electricity needs of the town wastewater treatment plant with more to spare. The excess energy will be used to power the town house, the fire department and the library through a group net-metering arrangement recently approved by the New Hampshire public utility commission (PUC).
