MOUNT DESERT ISLANDER - Solar talk set at library
“Solar energy experts will discuss how solar panels work, what makes a good site, and how much solar typically costs at a presentation entitled “Here Comes the Sun: Solar Power on MDI” at the Northeast Harbor Library on Wednesday, Jan. 18, from 5:30-7 p.m. The presentation, which follows a similar presentation at the Southwest Harbor Public Library, is sponsored by A Climate to Thrive and is being done in parallel with the sponsor’s new bulk purchasing program, Solarize MDI, that aims to see 50 new solar installations on Mount Desert Island this year. It comes after the Bar Harbor Community Solar Farm, the first in eastern Maine and the first in Emera’s territory, went live last week." Speakers include energy consultant and ACTT advisory board member Ken Colburn; John Luft, branch general manager of ReVision Energy; and Vaughan Woodruff, owner of Insource Renewables."
