Granite Apollo Proposes 20 Megawatt Milford Solar Project
Project will generate clean, affordable energy for New Hampshire ratepayers, spur economic development and help decrease regional carbon emissions
Milford, NH – Granite Apollo has signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with the Town of Milford to develop an up to 20MW AC solar project on town owned property.
The project, named “Milford Solar”, will be located on approximately 120 acres of Town owned land off of Perry Road on either side of Route 101. Granite Apollo will lease the land from the Town. The project will be designed to minimize environmental impacts on the property.
The full lease option between the Town of Milford and Granite Apollo will be on the March 2019 Town Meeting Day Ballot for final approval by the voters of Milford.
The approximately 20 megawatt project would generate enough clean electricity to power approximately 5,000 New England homes.
Granite Apollo expects to negotiate a power purchase agreement for sale of the power within the ISO-NE marketplace.
“The Milford Solar Project will generate clean, renewable power at competitive prices to help Granite Staters save money on their power bills,” said Chris Stewart, founder at Granite Apollo. “Well sited utility scale solar is a key part of New England’s energy future and we are excited to work with the Town of
Milford on this project.”
“This is a great opportunity for the Town of Milford,” said Mark Bender, Milford Town Administrator. “We look forward to working closely with Granite Apollo to help make this project a model for large scale, responsible clean energy development in New Hampshire.”
Granite Apollo has also announced plans to develop a 10MW AC solar project in Londonderry, New Hampshire on the Auburn Road Superfund Site and a 17MW AC solar project in Hopkinton, New Hampshire on the Hopkinton/Webster landfill.
