Blog : NH Solar Garden to Install Solar Panels

By Patrick Haigis | Nov 14, 2014 | in

The town of Milton's board of selectmen have entered into a lease contract with NH Solar Garden. NH Solar Garden will install solar panels on the Milton transfer station's capped landfill. NH Solar Garden sells the electricity received from the solar panels to PSNH.

Milton's board of selectmen are currently looking for local businesses to join the town in participatig in the NH Solar Garden program. It is similar to joining a membership club and will allow participants to save one cent off the retail price of electricity. To participate, the business must be a PSNH customer and receive their electric bills directly from PSNH and not a third party provider. The program allows the participants to remain with PSNH and pay their monthly bill to PSNH.

At the end of the year participants receive a rebate check from NH Solar Garden. There is no fee cost to the participant. The rebate amount is a percentage of the electricity cost incurred during the hear. For every kWh a participant uses, NH Solar Garden will pay one cent/kWh.

If you are a business owner interested in participating in the NH Solar Garden, contact the town's administrator, Elizabeth Dionne at 603-652-4501. You can also contact Andrew Kellar-Founder of NH Solar Garden at 603-817-1175 or visit their website
