The construction of a wind turbine in town is also being debated. A feasibility study concluded a turbine could be placed near the middle school, possibly supplying about 60 percent of the School Department's power. The wind turbine, which is still years from being approved and constructed, in combination with the solar panels, would allow the town's school district to operate on mostly green energy.
"The School Department has been a tremendous partner in this initiative," Maylor said. "It's one of the largest school (solar) installations in the state."
