    Town considers solar power

    DUMMERSTON — Officials in Dummerston say they’re considering working with a private company to install solar power panels to produce electricity, but they want to make sure there’s support in the community.

    Last week the Select Board authorized the Dummerston Energy Committee to research the idea of building a solar array that would eventually be owned by the town.

    Energy Committee Chairman Alex Wilson said there’s a lot of interest from private investors that would put the cash up front to build a photovoltaic system and then taking advantage of governmental tax credits associated with solar power.

    A solar array might produce enough power to offset the electricity used by Dummerston School, the town’s biggest energy consumer.
