High school could go solar

Official says town would save$135k a year on power

Burlington school officials say the town would save $135,000 a year in energy costs under a plan to place solar panels on the high school roof.

Two firms submitted bids for the contract to install the solar array and operate the system, according to Craig Robinson, director of finance and operations for the schools. The town would buy electricity from the selected firm for 15 years, after which it would take ownership of the system. The two firms submitting bids were Hudson Energy Solar of Ramsey, N.J., and Select Energy Development of Hopkinton.
