Attorney proposes Maine's largest solar array

A developer has proposed what would become Maine's largest grid-connected solar energy project, but financing for the project hinges on a change in state law.

The Bangor Daily News reported that attorney Kim Kenway is seeking to build the 2.8-megawatt capacity project through his company, Gouldsboro Solar LLC, on a 12.8-acre lot at the former Naval radar base in Corea, a small village in Gouldsboro in Hancock County. The project would be built by Portland-based ReVision Energy. Bar Harbor-based Jackson Laboratory plans to buy power from it.

Assistant House Minority Leader Sara Gideon, D-Freeport, has proposed legislation that would allow solar projects like Kenway's to sell renewable energy credits. Kenway told the newspaper that the change in state law, along with a long-term contract with Jackson Lab, would allow the $9 million project to move forward.
