SunEdison builds New Hampshire solar power plant

SunEdison Inc Workforce Initiative

Solar energy development firm SunEdison completed construction on a 942 kW DC solar power plant for the town of Peterborough, New Hampshire.

SunEdison will supply solar energy generated by this system to the town over the next 20 years, saving taxpayers an estimated $250,000 on energy.

The Peterborough solar system is expected to generate more than 100 percent of the town's wastewater treatment facility's electricity needs. The system will also offset electricity at other municipal buildings, and will reduce carbon dioxide emissions by more than 17 million pounds over the period of the agreement—the equivalent carbon sequestered by more than 6,300 acres of U.S. forests in a year.

SunEdison collaborated with Borrego Solar, a developer, designer, installer, and operations and maintenance provider of commercial solar, to complete the project after acquiring it from Borrego Solar earlier in 2015.

The system was funded in part by a grant from the New Hampshire Public Utility Commission. Operation and maintenance of the solar systems will be performed by SunEdison Services, which provides global asset management, monitoring and reporting services.
