Solar In New Hampshire: Big And Small At The Same Time

We’ve been talking about energy a lot lately in New Hampshire – debates over wind farms, jet-fueled turbines generating power during peak demand, and, of course, Northern Pass.

There’s one energy project that hasn’t gotten much attention lately – a project in Peterborough that would create the largest solar power array in the state.

To learn more about that plan, and solar as a whole in New Hampshire, we turn to David Brooks. He writes the weekly Granite Geek science column for the Nashua Telegraph, and the blog of the same name at GraniteGeek.org. In his recent column, Brooks says solar installations tend to be small - just a few kilowatts in a typical home installation - but they add up to a significant amount of energy in New Hampshire.
