    Schools seek solar-power pact

    The Silver Lake Regional School District is negotiating on a 20-year agreement to purchase power from a solar project being planned for Dartmouth. The school district, which serves Kingston, Halifax, and Plympton, estimates it would save $76,000 in energy costs the first year and more in subsequent years — for a total of more than $10 million over the course of the agreement. The district is negotiating with No Fossil Fuel, which is owned by Mary O’Donnell of Kingston. Officials plan to bring the agreement before the regional school committee at its Dec. 13 meeting at the Silver Lake Regional High School in Kingston.
