The Somers School District was awarded a $275k grant to install a 50kW photovoltaic (PV) system on the Town’s high school. In addition to saving the school system $10,000 annually in reduced electricity costs, we will also be substantially lowering our carbon footprint by over 100,000 lbs of CO2 emissions or the equivalent of 6,600 mature maple trees!

Somers had to reschedule a lighting project intended to begin the Monday after Hurricane Irene knocked out power to most of the town. The project was 70% funded by a NYSEG and is estimated to save over $5,000 annually and 53,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions avoided.
