Brentwood voters approved two warrant articles this spring that has led to a 434-panel solar display in the field next to the Fire Station on Middle Road.  The array, completed in partnership with ReVision Energy,  will generate 132.37-kilowatts of power. That's enough to offset 100 per cent of the town's municipal electric load, with the exception of the Swasey School.

The power generated by the sun will save Brentwood taxpayers as much as $1-million over the life of the system as well as minimizing the town's impact of the environment.

The official ribbon cutting on September 16th from 11 am to noon will coincide with the towns 275th anniversary celebration.
