On Monday, September 20, CES Energy Services Advisor Zack Hallock joined Manchester, New Hampshire Mayor Joyce Craig, representatives from the Manchester Department of Public Works, and key partners at a groundbreaking ceremony to launch the City of Manchester’s newest solar array.
Now officially underway after two years of preparation and planning, the project – once completed – will be the largest municipal solar array in the New Hampshire with more than 8,000 panels that will supply approximately 3.8 million kilowatt hours of clean energy to the power grid annually, equivalent to the electricity usage of about 500 homes.
“The Department of Public Works is proud to be a part of another clean energy project for the City of Manchester,” said Tim Clougherty, Deputy Director, Department of Public Works. “We’d like to thank our energy consultant, Competitive Energy Services, the project developer, Kearsarge Energy, Mayor Craig and the Aldermen (O’Neill) for helping bring this project to reality.”
“A client since 2008, Competitive Energy Services is privileged to work and consult with the City of Manchester as the City seeks to expand its clean energy and sustainability initiatives. Today is a monumental day for the Queen City and we are pleased to be a part of this project with today’s official launch,” said Zack Hallock.
