BLACKSTONE â€“ Saying itâ€™s time for Blackstone to get on the solar power bandwagon, Board of Selectmen Chairman Russell L. Wells wants his board to revisit the idea of constructing a solar farm in Blackstone to help the town save money on energy costs.
The town was looking at a proposal last year to install ground-mounted photovoltaic solar panels at the former landfill on Chestnut Street, but it never got off the ground.
Wells, who was elected to the board in April, says itâ€™s time for the board to start that process over again.
â€śI know we started this last year and it fell apart. I would like to pump some life back into it again,â€ť he told the board during a recent meeting.
