DURHAM — As of this week, the Durham's 120 kW solar energy project is fully up and running.

ReVision Energy flipped the switch on solar panels atop Churchill Rink and the Durham Police Station Dec. 23, and both have begun generating power. The solar array on the Durham Public Library has been online for several weeks.

The $410,000 project, which was nearly three years in the making, was possible through a partnership with Maine-based ReVision that required no up-front costs.

Now, several other communities have taken note of that partnership, which is relatively unique in Granite State.

Durham Town Administrator Todd Selig has discussed its project with Barrington's town administrator and met recently with a Hampton School District delegation. He also sent a copy of its agreement with ReVision to Plymouth State University.
