STRATHAM — The Planning Board recently approved Exeter Subaru's plan to install a six-panel solar array near the dealership's Portsmouth Avenue entrance.

According to the project's site plan, the panels will be affixed to an 11-foot pole mounted in a landscaped isle visible from the street. Exeter Subaru owner David Yanofsky said he hopes the estimated $20,000 project will be complete by January. "I believe we're the first dealership in the area to install a solar (panel) system, and there will likely be more to follow," he said.

According to Jeffrey Haydock of Waterline Alternative Energies of Seabrook, who presented the project to the board, the array will offset 2 to 3 percent of the building's energy bill.
