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.nhsolarshares.org
Funds will go to build the first of three locally designed multi purpose solar arrays. Once this phase is built 85% of the energy will be credited to low income families electric bills. The additional funds cover costs such as running an energy education program.
The first solar project for NH Solar Shares was completed in November, 2018 and a second project is underway in Warren, NH.
NH Solar Shares is a program that will share the gift of locally generated clean solar energy with the grid, the planet and local NH families needing assistance with their electric bills. The program builds mid-size solar PV arrays in an environmentally responsible manner one community at a time inspired by a local taskforce of volunteers and funded by charitable funds. The value of the solar energy is credited to income eligible families' electric bills (those primarily living in the town of the array). The families will sign up voluntarily, cycle through the program in two years and will also take part in an energy education program that will potentially further lower their utility costs.
