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.
