St. George is latest town to go solar on municipal buildings

The town of St. George has flipped the switch on its new solar array, which is expected to supply 90% of power to municipal buildings.

The PenBay Pilot reported the 225-panel array is located on the roof of the town’s transfer station. ReVision Energy will own and get the tax credits and depreciation of the solar system for six years. At that time the town can purchase the solar array.

The town of Camden fired up its first municipal solar array in January. At that time, the PenBay Pilot reported the array is expected to offset about 7% of the town's annual energy use. The ground-mounted array, installed by ReVision Energy, consists of 351 solar panels and is on municipally owned land.

In 2017, the city councils of Portland and South Portland approved contracts with Portland-based ReVision Energy to create two of the state's largest municipal solar farms on each city's former landfill. ReVision has a growing portfolio of solar projects for municipalities, schools and businesses across the state. In late 2015, the company completed its first solar farm on an old municipal landfill, a 120-kilowatt, 396-panel project at Belfast's former landfill on Pitcher Road.
