The largest solar project in New England could be coming to the Loring Commerce Centre business park in Limestone.
The Bangor Daily News reported that the more than 100,000 solar panels, which would sit on 600 acres of land at the former Loring Air Force Base, could produce over 100 megawatts of power, which is enough to power between 20,000 and 30,000 homes.
The expansive solar project is coming to fruition through a lease agreement between the Loring Development Authority and Yarmouth-based Ranger Solar. Aaron Svedlow, Ranger’s permitting director, told the BDN that the company hopes to begin construction on the project in 2019 and that approximately 300 people would be employed during the building phase.
“We feel this project is a great fit for Loring Commerce Centre, as it will utilize previously impacted lands and does not conflict with other uses of the property,” Svedlow told the BDN.
