BUILDING COMMUNITY FUNDED ARRAYS TO SHARE THE BENEFITS OF SOLAR ENERGY WITH LOW INCOME FAMILIES
INCREASING THE AMOUNT OF SOLAR ENERGY POWERING OUR ELECTRIC GRID
A DONATION TO NH SOLAR SHARES IS A GIFT THAT WILL KEEP IN GIVING TO LOW INCOME FAMILIES AND THE ENVIRONMENT FOR OVER 25 YEARS
INTEGRATING SOLAR SYSTEMS IN TO OUR COMMUNITIES WITH CARE AND CREATIVITY, PRODUCING ENERGY WITHOUT HARMFUL EMISSIONS
About NH Solar Shares
NH Solar Shares in partnership with many community partners including the NH Electric Cooperative will design and install solar PV arrays one community at a time. The project brings multiple wins to our communities:
• Sharing proceeds generated from solar energy with low income families,
• Increasing the portion of clean renewable energy on our grid, and
• Contributing to building healthier, more sustainable communities.
Each array will be inspired by a task force of local volunteers and be built using funds from grants, crowd funding, individual donors, fundraisers and the state’s solar incentive. The first goal is to build one PV array in Plymouth, NH and two more in near-by communities with the goal of installing 125kW worth of solar by the Fall of 2018. The solar will be installed by NH solar installers with the help of volunteers to prep the site.
Warren, NH Chosen for Second NH Solar Shares Location
NH Solar Shares announced that they will be partnering with the Appleknockers General Store to build their second community solar PV array in Warren, NH.
“When we first heard about NH Solar Shares and their mission to bring the benefits of solar energy to local families in our area, we were immediately interested,” said store owner, Tori Berger. “We want to support our local community in any way we can and we have the perfect roof for installing solar panels.”
Once the project in Warren is underway, NH Solar Shares will be looking for families from the Warren/Wentworth area to sign up for the program. There is no cost to sign up and new families rotate through the program every two years.
The solar energy generated from the community solar arrays are credited monthly to the families’ electric bills. To participate, households must be in the NH Electric Cooperative service territory, qualify for NH Fuel Assistance and be interested in learning about both solar energy and home energy savings.
“We are committed to working long term with NH Solar Shares and support its effort to build community PV arrays in our service area and bring the cost savings of solar energy to more of our members.” Said Steve Camerino, President of the NH Electric Cooperative.
