Transition Wayland would like to thank and congratulate the Energy Committee for their hard work and fantastic results! The solar canopies at the High School, Middle School and Town Building and the roof top system at the Department of Public Works building will generate over 1.5 million kWh of renewable electricity each year. This will offset roughly 25 percent of the town’s municipal electric needs and generate a financial savings of more than $100,000 per year for Wayland.
“The projects represent an important contribution to Wayland’s continuing efforts to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions,” said the press release. “The carbon offset by the renewable power is equivalent to the annual electricity usage in more than 113 homes annually.”
