Dartmouth leads the way in solar

Better known for its sea breezes, sailing community, and coastal landscape, the small town of Dartmouth can now boast of another — more modern — outdoor wonder: the largest amount of solar power in Massachusetts.

The South Coast community now has 9.28 megawatts of solar power production installed around the town, putting it ahead of much larger municipalities such as Boston, according to the latest count by state energy and environmental officials.
