In a step toward energy independence and following the success of solar panels at their Vineyard Haven location, Cronig’s Market is planning to install a nearly $2 million solar canopy at its up-Island location.
The sun was absent from the gathering, but celebrated nonetheless on Tuesday afternoon as the town of Tisbury dedicated its first solar array. The 1.2 megawatt project is tucked away behind the park and ride lot.
Smith Hollow is a quiet neighborhood in Edgartown. But this past summer, the installation of a new municipal solar array added a new sound to the mix: incessant humming that all but drowns out the other sounds at some Smith Hollow residences.
More than three years after the town of Edgartown made a bet on green energy, the town's municipal solar sites are now feeding power back into the grid. But getting to this point has been anything but easy.
