Bank of New Hampshire Stage – Concord, NH

The Bank of NH Stage held its grand opening in June of 2019, with 131 solar panels installed on the rooftop. The theatre, part of the Capitol Center for the Arts, will now be producing its own clean, local energy.

As a nonprofit organization, the Capitol Center for the Arts financed the array through a Power Purchase Agreement. Their diverse programming ranges from Broadway shows, to ballet, to educational workshops and symposia.
