Did you know that South Portland is home to Maine's largest municipal solar array? Located on the cities closed landfill, the solar 2,944-panel array produces about one megawatt of electricity annually, roughly 12% of the electricity used by South Portland’s municipal and school buildings. Cool!
Please join NRCM Rising, ReVision Energy, and the South Portland Sustainability Office for a tour of this impressive solar array from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. During the tour you'll learn about exciting progress made on solar energy development in the Maine Legislature earlier this year.
