23 Oct Waldoboro Transfer Station Announcement
Sundog Solar was recently awarded a contract to install a 110 kW solar array at the Waldoboro Transfer Station. This project will save the town $380,000 over the life of the system.
Sundog Solar will install and own the solar system and sell power to the town of Waldoboro for a lower rate than it currently pays. In addition to saving money from day one, this solar installation is a great way to hedge against rising energy costs. The town will have the option to purchase the solar system, starting in year six.
The Economic Development Committee selected Sundog Solar in a competitive process. Sundog Solar is dedicated to making affordable solar energy available to homeowners, businesses, and organizations throughout Maine. The Sundog Solar team has been installing solar energy systems throughout Maine since 2009 and has installed systems for other municipalities, saving money and helping the environment.
“It is very important to preserve farmland in Maine to feed our population and ensure food security,” says Danny Piper, co-owner of Sundog Solar. “This installation makes productive use of landfill space while generating clean energy.”
