Solar panels installed at Lakes Region Conservation Trust
The Lakes Region Conservation Trust, located on Route 25B in Center Harbor, added 42 solar PV panels to their newly renovated office building, with support from the Thomas Haas Foundation at the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation in partnership with the Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative, Mauchly Electric, and New England Commercial SolarServices. The 12-kilowatt solar array is located on the south and east facing roofs of LRCT’s headquarters and is estimated to produce over 14,000 kilowatt hours of clean, renewable energy every year. “Here at the Conservation Trust we want to do our part for the environment by reducing our carbon footprint. We also want to inspire others, who drive by our office, to do the same,” said Lisetta Silvestri, LRCT operations director. “When solar energy replaces fossil fuel generated electricity,” Sandra Jones, Director of PAREI explains, “it reduces greenhouse gas emissions that are responsible for climate change. We have been working as a community based energy initiative since 2004. Over the last few years we are seeing families and organizations display a more fervent interest in taking action to reduce their energy use or produce renewable energy. Our community should feel proud of the work we are all doing together.” To learn more about LRCT, visit For more information about the Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative, visit (Courtesy photo)
