Power Usage

According to the EPA, the average American home uses 867 KWh per month.  Assuming 4 peak hours of sunlight per day, a 6 MW installation produces 720 MWh of power per month.  Divided out by the 867 per house, this comes out to about 800 homes.

Current Installations

Rt 6

There’s already a solar installation on Rt 6, between the Mobil station and the state line.  It’s approximately 20 acres.

 

Pending Installations

At the June 13, 2018 meeting of the Zoning Board, a plan was approved for a 20 acre, 6 megawatt solar installation on Hartford Pike (Rt 101).
