Warner officials research solar energy project
Town Administrator Jim Bingham said several town officials took a "walk-around" last month with Jonathan Gregory of SunRay Solar, LLC of Concord.
Officials were looking for an area about half of the size of the town's soccer field, although the space does not necessarily need to be in that shape, he said.
They found what appears to be the optimal spot, in an area of space on one end of Bagley Field, the school's soccer field.
The idea would be to provide electricity to 10 town buildings — likely to include the community center, town hall, police station, fire station, village precinct building, pump station and the highway department building.
The plan is for the project to pay for itself within five to seven years.
"The goal is to be electrically self-sufficient," Bingham said."It would provide for our current needs, and our future needs. Who wouldn't want to go without having to pay electric bills?"
