A public ribbon cutting and tour are scheduled on October 17 to showcase two solar arrays that were recently installed at the community center and fire station in Nottingham. The arrays will offset roughly 90% of the municipality’s electric load. Harnessing the sun to generate electricity will save taxpayers approximately $600,000 over the life of the systems, reducing both the town’s carbon footprint and its energy costs.
After Nottingham voters approved two warrant articles last year, ReVision Energy installed two grid-tied rooftop arrays earlier this year, a 50.4-kilowatt system at the town’s fire station and a 60-kilowatt system at its community center. The fire station array includes 168 solar panels, and the community center array includes 200 panels. The arrays are backed by a 25-year warranty and have an expected lifespan of 40 years. If all of the solar panels were laid lengthwise, end-to-end, the panels would span the length of five and a half football fields.
