ReVision Energy has accomplished the set up of the biggest rooftop solar array in firm historical past. The project at the Dover High School and Career Technical Center in Dover, New Hampshire, consists of 2,581 solar panels, growing the state’s solar capability by 1.5% and saving Dover taxpayers greater than $4 million long-term at no upfront value. The project was unanimously accredited by the Dover City Council final yr.
The solar array has a predicted lifespan of 40 years and can generate over 1,000 MWh of electrical energy annually, offsetting roughly 40% of the school’s electrical load.
The 912-kilowatt array was financed via a PPA which lets the town buy electrical energy at below-market charges and features a buy possibility that turns into obtainable in yr 10 of the settlement, permitting Dover to accumulate the array at a big low cost.
Investor accomplice Kenyon Energy owns the school array and can promote the electrical energy to the town at a negotiated charge. PPAs allow nonprofits, municipalities, and colleges which might be precluded from accessing obtainable solar incentives to transition to scrub energy at no upfront value. The PPA provides the town the power to leverage the financial advantages of solar power whereas affording the investor accomplice the chance to make neighborhood investments that align with its core values of making optimistic change on the planet.
Ongoing upkeep and operations of the project can be managed by Bay4 Energy, one of many nation’s main solar service firms offering a complete suite of energy and asset efficiency administration providers.
The Renewable Energy Credits (REC) generated by the array can be offered by Kenyon Energy into environmental compliance markets for the time period of the PPA.
ReVision Energy’s settlement with Dover consists of an academic initiative aimed at educating college students how solar energy works and exposing them to the assorted features concerned within the engineering, electrical and advertising facets of the project.
“This project has the potential to ignite the imaginations of current and future students,” stated Zachary Koehler, Dover Energy Commission member. “This has the potential to stimulate a passion for engineering and development of this technology in their future endeavors, be it in furthering education or career opportunities. When this happens, our students can be the ones who bring our community, our state and our country closer to the clean energy future that we so desperately need.”
The City of Dover additionally partnered with ReVision Energy on the set up of rooftop solar arrays at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire and adjoining Dover Indoor Pool. ReVision Energy donated 103 solar panels for the set up, a part of a 318-panel solar array at the museum and pool which share a typical electrical energy meter. The rooftop tasks put in on the museum and indoor pool are owned by ReVision Solar Impact Partners.
