This isn't the first energy efficiency project the town has tackled. The chiller unit at town hall was traded in for a more efficient unit that will save energy and money, and a capped landfill is being considered as a site for solar panels.
"Really, part of our focus in all areas is to reduce operating expenses wherever we can so we'll take any opportunities and any ideas to reduce them," said Barrett. "This has the added benefit of using alternative energy as a means of power so that's something that's very important we're very pleased to bring this project to fruition and we'll start saving some real money."
Barrett said a green committee was established a couple years ago and has pioneered recycling efforts and other similar initiatives.
