The town has signed a long-term agreement to purchase 2.4 megawatts of solar energy from the No Fossil Fuels company owned by Kingston developer Mary O’Donnell. Town officials said the pact will reduce the town’s power costs, but the deal comes with a caveat, said Town Planner Jack Hunter. No Fossil Fuels must have purchasers for all 6 megawatts of the project’s capacity in order to secure financing for the $17 million project to be built on a capped landfill in Marshfield. O’Donnell has said No Fossil Fuels has an agreement in the works with Silver Lake Regional School District to purchase a large portion of the project’s solar energy.
