Sundog Solar recently completed the installation of a 32-kilowatt solar system for the Town of Stockton Springs. The project is expected to save the town over $106,000 over the life of the solar energy system. Sundog Solar, a locally owned solar company located in Searsport, installed and owns the solar panel system. It has a power purchase agreement (PPA) to sell energy for six years to the Town of Stockton Springs for a lower rate than it currently pays the utility company. Stockton Springs will then have the option to buy the solar energy system or continue to purchase electricity from Sundog Solar at a discounted rate. The solar energy systems consist of 105 Q CELLS solar panels which are mounted on the roof of the town garage. The solar panels will generate an estimated 38,500 kWh of electricity annually and have a design life of 30 years. The solar energy output is enough to offset the electricity use of the town office, public works garage, fire department, ballpark and harbor.
