Town of Thomaston solarOfficials from the town of Thomaston and representatives from ReVision Energy will host a solar open house to showcase the town’s recent solar installation at the Water Pollution Control Department. Citizens of Thomaston and neighboring towns are encouraged to visit the facility at 33 Clark St. on Saturday, May 14 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The focus of the open house will be the 18 kilowatt grid-tied solar electric (photovoltaic) system that ReVision Energy installed on the main roof of the Pollution Control Department in November of 2010. The system will produce 23,000 kilowatt hours each year and eliminate 16 tons of CO2 from the environment annually.

Guests will have the opportunity to see the solar energy system first hand, learn about the equipment used, and see how grid-tied solar technology works. Light refreshments will also be served.

Clark Street can be reached from Booker Street off Route 1 in downtown Thomaston.
