Peterborough holds largest solar power system in NH

The Associated Press

PETERBOROUGH— The town of Peterborough is holding its "Flipping the Switch" ceremony for the largest solar power system in New Hampshire.

The town is having a celebration at 11 a.m. Friday.

The 944-kilowatt solar array will power the town's wastewater treatment plant and provide electricity to some municipal buildings.

The town received a $1.2 million grant from the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission. It will further offset the cost through a 20-year power purchase agreement with a subsidiary of Borrego Solar Systems — developer of the project.

The town expects to save between $250,000 and $500,000 over the next 20 years.
