Regional Economic Development Center – Raymond, NH

In December of 2017, the Regional Economic Development Center expanded an existing solar array with another 55 panels on the roof of their Raymond, NH office.

Each year, the 16.5 grid-tied solar electric system will generate roughly 15,969 kilowatt-hours (kWhs) of electricity, offsetting the equivalent of over 27,600 miles driven in a gas-powered car.

The project was financed through a Power Purchase Agreement, allowing them to install the array at no upfront cost.

System size: 16.5 kilowatts (55 solar panels)
