Solar PV begun at WWTP

The construction of the town’s solar photovoltaic installation at the Waste Water Treatment Plant began today.  This email below about it this afternoon –solar pv


I am pleased to announce that site work has started this morning.  Local contractor Angelo Santucci Landscaping has begun clearing the site of vegetation.  Tree removal will begin next week along with grading and seeding.  If all goes well and the weather cooperates, they expect to be done by the end of next week.

As of now the structural post installation will begin November 23, with panel installation to begin early-mid December.  We are still on schedule for system start-up in mid-January.

I’ll keep you all updated on the progress!

  1. How much electricity will it provide and who gets that electricity?


  2. Selectman Osler "Pete" Peterson

    From memory i believe it is a 2KW installation. All the electricity will be used by the WWTP, and again from memory, i believe it will supply about 40% of the WWTP electric needs. If you want the real numbers, give Andrew Seaman a call (his # is in the post).
