The Solar Array Subcommittee of the town’s Alternative Energy Committee is seeking potential partners to build a solar array on top of a capped 2-acre landfill behind the town’s transfer station. Committee members told selectmen the town would need a private developer to lease the property, own and operate the solar array, and sell power to the town under a long-term contract at below-market rates. The subcommittee has issued a request for proposals from qualified parties to study the idea. The group is also working with the town’s School Building Committee to plan for solar collectors in the design of the proposed new high school. - Robert Knox
