06 Aug Video Footage of Tremont Solar Farm
Sundog Solar recently installed a 153-kW solar farm for the town of Tremont on a capped landfill on Mount Desert Island in Maine. The town used to pay between $ 0.17 and $ 0.18 per kWh of electricity. They now pay $ 0.125 per kWh for solar electricity, resulting in instant savings.
“The Tremont landfill is the first landfill is currently the largest solar system on Mount Desert Island,” said Chris Saunders, town manager for the Town of Tremont. “The new solar array will provide clean power for most of the municipal properties in Tremont for many years.”
