PETERBOROUGH, N.H. (AP) - The town of Peterborough is holding its “Flipping the Switch” ceremony for the largest solar power system in New Hampshire.

The town is having a celebration at 11 a.m. Friday.

The 944-kilowatt solar array will power the town’s wastewater treatment plant and provide electricity to some municipal buildings.

The town received a $1.2 million grant from the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission. It will further offset the cost through a 20-year power purchase agreement with a subsidiary of Borrego Solar Systems - developer of the project.

The town expects to save between $250,000 and $500,000 over the next 20 years.
