Hosting a Community Solar Farm in Maine
Hosting a Solar Farm
If you have a piece of land where you might wish to host a farm, ReVision Energy is very interested in speaking with you.
There is currently very strong interest in sites for solar farms so good hosts are critical in helping this cooperative model of solar expand throughout Maine and New Hampshire. Some important things for potential solar farm hosts to know:
- There is some, but not significant, financial opportunity for hosting a solar farm. As such, ideal hosts will have a strong desire to help realize a solar farm for environmental and social reasons and not just financial motivation.
- Ideal sites are unshaded open fields with reasonably easy access to utility electrical service.
- While the landowner is required to maintain insurance for the property, the maintenance of the solar farm is provided by a mutual benefit corporation that is created in the process of organizing the solar farm.
