Cardigan Mountain School in Canaan, NH

Project Summary

This 964kW, net-metered, distributed generation photovoltaic system serves Cardigan Mountain School in Canaan, NH installed in 2016. This fixed tilt, ground-mounted solar array utilizes the proprietary, Norwich Technologies EZ-PV MetaModule installation approach to optimize installation efficiencies.

Norwich Solar Technologies Scope

Full scope Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC). Norwich Technologies worked directly with school administrators and Board members from initial, conceptual planning stages through final installation. Norwich Technologies played a key role in securing solar investor, incentives, and working with the local utility to ensure optimal production and return on investment. Norwich Technologies EZ-PV Meta-Module approach greatly improved installation efficiency while  minimizing site disruption. The MetaModule approach increased safety and decreased crew size while minimizing material handling and site disruption.

Production Statistics

The project is expected to generate 1,200,000kWh of clean solar electricity in year 1 saving Cardigan Mountain School ~10% for that net metered solar energy. Over the first 25 years of the solar array, it will produce net metered solar valued at >$4,000,000 and offset the equivalent of over 26,000,000 lbs of Carbon Dioxide emissions.
