Cheshire County CD heads community solar project to benefit agriculture

July 8, 2019by ncdea

NEW HAMPSHIRE, Cheshire County CD – In a project headed by the Cheshire County Conservation District, by this fall Sun Moon Farm could host a 95-kilowatt ground array which would generate power not only for Sun Moon Farm but for other agricultural pursuits around the region.

“We had been very interested in a community-supported solar model to benefit farms in the region,” Amanda Littleton, the district manager for the Cheshire County Conservation District, said Wednesday. “Electricity costs can be so high for farms, particularly if they have things like greenhouses, cooling systems, dairy farms or maple syrup operations. This could be a great way to improve profitability and viability for farms as a business.”
