Program Topic: Bar Harbor’s Community Solar Farm Project

Key Discussion Points:
1) Today we talk about two solar projects in development in Bar Harbor. One, a roof top array on the public works building to power that building and the other, a community solar farm which will power a number of homes. Bar Harbor’s will be the first community solar farm on public land in the state.
2) We talk with Bar harbor town councilor Gary Friedman about local efforts to develop sustainable energy and address climate change.
3) We talk with a ReVision Energy representative, John Loft, about action being taken around the state to transition to solar power.
