2014 Ammonoosuc Regional Solar Forum Recap - Well Attended and Well Presented!


         

 

 

A half day forum on solar power in the Ammonoosuc Region was held in November, 2014 at the White Mountain School. Over 60 participants listened to informative and engaging presentations from residents, vendors, local schools, and energy experts.

 

The major message?

 

“If you are sitting around waiting to put in a solar array, you are losing money,” according to Clay Mitchell, Policy Director at the NH Sustainable Energy Association. Declining costs of solar equipment and higher energy costs make solar power immediately affordable, even with weather like ours in the North Country.
