Steve Whitman (Geography/Environmental Planning) and the students in Advanced Planning are assisting the Town of Plymouth’s Energy Commission with a study of “group net metering”. Recently enabled by the legislature in 2013 this would allow for the construction of one solar array to provide energy to a number of structures with their own electrical meters. The class is reviewing municipally owned properties to identify suitable sites for a solar array, analyzing electric data for the municipal buildings, and will be reporting out to the Energy Commission in April on their initial findings and what this may mean for the size options and costs of such an infrastructure investment.
