Expert explains solar project in talk at Jesup (Tue. 21 Apr, 2015 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

BAR HARBOR — Join Sue Jones, director of Community Solar Farms (CSFs) for ReVision Energy, at the Jesup Memorial Library on Tuesday, April 21 at 4 p.m. to learn more about use of solar energy for homes and businesses in Maine, including a proposed CSF program in Bar Harbor.Ms. Jones will be speaking about solar energy ownership and usage opportunities in Maine, ranging from private ownership of a project by owners to offset some or all usage at a home or business to a new business model called “community solar farms” in which multiple owners utilize publicly and/or privately owned locations for project development and self-organizing to co-own solar arrays in order to offset their electricity usage.She will also speak about the basics of a CSF proposed for town-owned land at Bar Harbor’s public works property that is up for vote on June 2.  There will be a question-and-answer session following the talk. “CSFs are growing rapidly in providing co-ownership opportunities for residents seeking to own solar power generation but who are unable to have it installed on their own property because of having a poor site, unsuitable roof, no land, and other restrictions,” says Gary Friedmann.  CSFs are relatively new to Maine but are in wide use in Massachusetts, Colorado, Minnesota, and New Hampshire.Ms. Jones is an attorney with 22 years of experience in representing renewable energy and environmental issues, projects, policy and programming, and has spent the past decade in project management, education, outreach, technical assistance, government relations, and public financing including grant and technical writing.  ReVision is northern New England’s leader in the professional design, installation, and service of solar energy systems. With staff approaching 80 solar professionals, it maintains warehouse, office, and fabrication shops in Portland and Liberty, Maine, as well as Exeter, New Hampshire. It supplies solar energy systems to commercial and residential clients in Maine, New Hampshire, and northeastern Massachusetts.  ###
