System output:  1,000,000 kWh/year
Serves 12 branches

Gorham Savings Bank worked with our South Portland branch to install a 1.1-million-dollar solar array that when complete will offset virtually all of its electricity costs across its 12 branches and several office locations, including its 29,000 square foot Operations Center. The installation will generate 1 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) annually and be located adjacent to the bank’s Operations Center at 10 Wentworth Drive in Gorham.

The Bank’s first use of solar was its Route One Falmouth branch, built in 2010, which features solar panels on the drive-thru and is LEED Gold Certified, an internationally recognized green building certification.

“The Town of Gorham is pleased to work with Gorham Savings Bank through the permitting and construction process to see their strategic vision of investing in renewable resources be realized,” said Tom Poirier, Director of Community Development.
