Solar Project

The Community Development Advisory Committee recommended that the Select Board proceed immediately to issue an RFP to solar contractors to include Option 1 and Option 2 as outlined in memo.  While CDAC prefers Option 1, Option 2 can also be included in the RFP.  Since Bowdoinham’s usage is comparatively small and might not attract as many investors, Option 2 will enable a contractor to bundle us with other projects for a larger investment opportunity.  Once the Selectboard receives the bids, we can compare the advantages and potential savings outlined in their proposals and decide whether to move forward.
