Solar Shares Project Completed!

December 4, 2023

The solar installation for NH Solar Shares, located behind LRCT Headquarters, has been completed and inspected, and it now generates solar energy!

On November 30th the solar installers programmed the inverters and one day later the system had already generated 116kWH of clean renewable energy for our local electricity grid! The solar project consists of two ground-mounted arrays using (70) 500w solar PV panels. The panels are the new bi-facial technology designed to also produce power from the reflection of the snow. 100% of the solar energy generated will be credited to 12 income-qualified households in the region starting in February 2024.

Four Inverters

The final steps, come Spring, will be to plant more blueberry bushes and perennial flowers, seed the work road, install a kiosk and picnic table and complete the solar trail that will link up with LRCT’s existing trail that starts in the back of the parking lot. Also in the Spring, we will be holding a ribbon cutting and will dedicate/name the solar trail.

This project was a success thanks to the partnership between Lakes Region Conservation Trust, Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative (PAREI), Barrington Power, Mains Electric, Mauchly Electric, NH Electric Cooperative Foundation, NH Dept of Energy’s Renewable Energy Fund, NH Charitable Foundation, Hammond Climate Solutions and volunteers from Americorps, LRCT and PAREI.
