Blackstone takes another look at solar power farm

July 12, 2014

BLACKSTONE – Saying it’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 it’s time for the board to start that process over again.

“I know we started this last year and it fell apart. I would like to pump some life back into it again,” he told the board during a recent meeting.
