Monadnock Food Co-op is the host of the first locally owned Community Supported Solar project in New Hampshire. Community Supported Solar is locally developed, funded, owned and controlled, whereas most community solar projects are owned and controlled by developers or utilities.
The 43.5 kW photovoltaic project, was installed by the Keene-based design and installation firm Solar Source, and covers our entire available roof area with solar panels that convert sunlight into electricity. Based on the actual production of the Brattleboro Food Co-op’s PV system, the predicted annual power output of this system is 48,000 kWh per year.
