keene-nh-solar-arrayVia Sentinel Source, the Keene, NH City Council’s Finance, Organization and Personnel Committee voted unanimously to move forward with a municipal solar array installed by ReVision Energy, hopefully by the end of 2018. The PPA project will save Keene an estimated $13,500 annually:

“We’re always looking to reduce expenses in the city,” Watson said before the meeting. “This will provide a project that is equal to or less than what we’re currently paying for energy.”

Besides saving the city money, Watson said the project would have tremendous environmental benefits, offsetting more than 800,000 pounds of carbon emissions per year — the equivalent of more than 41,000 gallons of gasoline.
