ISLES OF SHOALS, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire’s Star Island in the Isles of Shoals is throwing a centennial party, where it will unveil its new solar array.

The solar array has 420 panels and is said to be the largest off-grid solar array in New England.

The nonprofit Star Island Corporation has owned the 43-acre island since 1915 and is inviting the public and dignitaries to its centennial activities Saturday.

The Isles of Shoals Steamship Company will have a boat to Star Island departing from its Portsmouth pier at 10:30 a.m.

Festivities include the cutting of a birthday cake at 12:30 p.m. and a 2 p.m. ribbon cutting and dedication of the solar array, followed by a tour highlighting the island’s history and sustainability efforts.
