PLYMOUTH (AP) - An empty lot in Plymouth, New Hampshire has been turned into one of the largest solar arrays in the state.

The 121-kilowatt system is projected to generate a quarter of the annual electric needs of the Plymouth Village Water & Sewer District. It should help with the electric bill, which last year totaled nearly $70,000.

A $317,000 grant from the state's Renewable Energy Fund was awarded in December 2013.

Scott McNeil, administrator of the energy solutions program at the New Hampshire Electric Cooperative, said the solar array is expected to produce upwards of 145,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually.

On Jan. 8, it generated 446 kwh in a single day - enough to power a typical New Hampshire home for a month.
