Solar Update:

  Construction at Colchester's first two municipally owned solar projects is complete!  Click below for a presentation that explains the progress and benefits of the Pumpkin Patch solar project.  The second project is located on Route 2/7, and is known as the Roosevelt Highway site.  Both are 150kW arrays that produce roughly 70% of the municipal operations' electrical consumption.  Planning for a third site is currently underway.
