NEWPORT TOWN GOES SOLAR

March 6, 2013

NEWPORT CENTER - Voters decided to go green by appropriating not more than $200,000 of unreserved funds for the purpose of a community energy solar garden. The fund currently has $339,108.
A solar panel array will provide electricity to town owned buildings, reducing electricity costs by as much as $7,500 annually for the first two years. Savings increase from there.
The town has two different proposed locations on Vance Hill for the panels. The panels are warranted to provide power at 100 percent for 25 years. After that, they will diminish in power two percent per year over time.
