A Maine-based company appears to have found a formula to win local backing for often controversial solar-energy projects: careful siting, a dose of patience and a willingness to alter plans to overcome objections.
I have spent the past several months going door to door, talking with New Hampshire voters throughout state Senate District 8. As a Republican candidate for this seat, I have discussed my vision to bolster vocational training, lower business taxes, develop a smart energy plan and address the opioid crisis. Listening to my fellow Granite Staters, one thing is clear — a united desire to keep New Hampshire’s high standard of living intact for future generations.
A Yarmouth-based energy company is in the early stages of bringing a utility-scale solar farm to Farmington that could break ground in 2018 and eclipse the size of any solar installation now operating in Maine
As local opponents of fracked gas and oil — and of the continued use of fossil fuels in general — applaud the demise of the Northeast Energy Direct pipeline project and fret about the prospect of the state allowing energy firms to charge ratepayers up-front for their construction costs, we again note the advisability of diversifying the type of energy generation in the region
A solar array approximately 60- to 80-times more powerful than any currently in the state may be coming to hundreds of acres in Fitzwilliam.
The City Council has approved a lease agreement for a solar farm at the airport that would be the largest in the state, and one of the largest in New England, if all goes according to plan.
If all goes well, Ranger Solar will begin construction in 2018 on a 50-megawatt, utility-grade solar array designed to sell energy to the power grid.
The City Council on Tuesday voted unanimously to authorize City Manager Steve Buck to execute a land lease for 226 acres at Sanford Regional Airport to Ranger Solar LLC, which will do business locally as Sanford Solar LLC

Connecticut may soon source more of its clean energy from within its own borders, if newly proposed projects are successful in a unique and ongoing multi-state bidding process.
The sun provides a predictable energy supply without the price volatility, or emissions, of fossil fuels. The New England region has sufficient solar energy available to power more than 4 million homes. Technological innovations have helped reduce the cost of solar energy by about 76 percent since 2006. And Vermonters believe in both clean energy and nurturing a stronger, more diverse economy. What’s more, Vermont needs more power, at an affordable price, for homes and businesses
