A nearly completed solar array atop Scituate’s capped landfill should be operating by November, town officials said. “The construction will be completed in September, and they will do testing and they expect to have it online in October/November,” said Al Bangert, director of the Department of Public Works. Though the start of construction was delayed, “it’s moving faster than we had anticipated. They are making very good headway,” Bangert said. Along with installing 10,500 solar panels, Brightfields Development LLC is working with school staff to develop lessons for the classroom. Electricity produced by the solar panels, combined with electricity produced by Scitate’s wind turbine, is expected to fulfill all of Scituate’s municipal power needs.
