Solar, shellfish, swingset and dispatch top Machias selectboard agenda

by Sarah Craighead Dedmon

The town of Machias stands to save more than $16,000 per year on its electric bills if it signs an agreement with a company that proposes building a solar array on a capped landfill located off of Broadway.

Andrew LaVogue of Revision Energy said the town’s average $104,000 in annual electricity consumption would cost approximately $88,000 under the program. Asked about risks for the town by board chairman Joshua Rolfe, LaVogue said the only risk would be if the town dramatically reduced its energy consumption.
