Solar in Nashua
Clean, renewable energy, like the privately-owned solar panels throughout Nashua, generate pollution-free electricity using a source that is in endless supply- the sun. Here we are looking at generation capacity – which is the maximum amount of electricity that could be produced by all of the solar panels in Nashua under perfect conditions.
A kilowatt is a measure of power, or how fast something generates or uses energy. The higher a unit’s kW, the faster it uses energy. One kilowatt equals 1,000 watts.
In 2015, 7.3 gigawatts of solar power were installed in the US, which is more than enough for every home in New Hampshire and Vermont combined, with power to spare.
Did you know? 1 MW of solar energy can power 164 homes
