US rooftop solar installer ReVision Energy has completed the installation of the 912 kW rooftop solar array at the Dover High School and Career Technical Center in New Hampshire, USA. The PV system includes 2,581 solar panels, increasing the state’s solar capacity by 1.5 percent. The project was approved by the Dover City Council last year. A public solar ribbon-cutting to celebrate the completion of the project is scheduled on September 19th.
The solar array has a useful lifespan of 40 years and will generate over 1,000 megawatt-hours of electricity each year, offsetting roughly 40 percent of the school’s electric load, says the company. It was financed through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA). Investor partner Kenyon Energy owns the school array and will sell the electricity to the city at a negotiated rate.
Ongoing maintenance and operations of the project will be managed by solar service company Bay4 Energy. ReVision Energy’s agreement with the City of Dover includes an educational initiative aimed at teaching students how solar energy works and exposing students to the various functions involved in the engineering, electrical, and marketing aspects of the project.
The City of Dover also partnered with ReVision Energy on the installation of rooftop solar arrays at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire and adjacent Dover Indoor Pool. ReVision Energy donated 103 solar panels for the installation, part of a 318-panel solar array at the museum and pool which share a common electricity meter. The rooftop projects installed on the museum and indoor pool are owned by ReVision Solar Impact Partners (RSIPs).
