Ocean sun, wind and wave: Cuttyhunk {solar and wind} energy project?, Web information about "installing solar PV in a rural community" from various public interest groups and governments, "Solar Energy" wiki subject page at WUaS, Engaging WUaS practically for learning about such situations.

Hi J and J and J,

Nice to talk with you recently.

Wow ... $2 .1 million for a possible Cuttyhunk {solar} energy project.

What to invest this in?

Why not invest it in very a basic computer control, transformer, and battery storage system that can be upgraded gradually over the decades ahead and prioritize planning to bring down the cost of Cuttyhunk electricity from .56 kwh to something like .12 kwh over a few years (owned and run by the Town of Gosnold)?  Why not also plan for Cuttyhunkers to be able to sell the solar and wind, etc., energy they generate back to the Town as battery storage improves?

Why not get three plans and bids for this from different companies in Falmouth, New Bedford, the Vineyard, Boston, etc., for example, and especially for the state of Massachusetts?

And I google searched on the web information about "installing solar PV in a rural community" and found these -






Some Massachusetts' resources:




I've added much of this to World University and School's "Solar Energy" wiki page -
http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Solar_Engineering#World_University_and_School_Links - (and I may add this blog post to this WUaS Solar page).

Three bids would help a lot with learning what's currently available and costing out the whole process, but people would have to talk with the town to see in what ways kilowatt per hour costs would come down by planning for this.


Some Massachusetts' installers I found by googling -
