The panels were installed owing to a partnership program forged by our town's Clean Energy Task Force and Glastonbury-based DCS Energy. DCS provides the solar technology to East Hampton at no cost; the town picks up the minor costs associated with installing the array's monitoring system.
Installing the array allows DCS to recoup money through state tax credits and rebates. The panels are expected to shave electricity bills and save East Hampton an estimated $75,000 over the 25 year life of solar system. Good deal!
