Plymouth

The Plymouth Public Schools and Borrego Solar Systems, Inc. hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony last Tuesday at the school district’s new 5.7-megawatt solar farm in Plympton. Located off Brook Street on land leased from Plympton Sand & Gravel, the solar panels cover more than 23 acres — an area roughly the size of 18 football fields. It is expected to save the Plymouth Public Schools approximately $400,000 per year in energy costs. “We’re pleased to celebrate our huge leap forward in meeting the district’s energy-reduction goals,” said Superintendent Gary Maestas in a press release. The event was attended by school administrators and state and local officials. High school students from Plymouth North and Plymouth South’s engineering, facilities management, and electrical programs were given a tour of the facility.
