NASHUA, N.H. (AP) - A soup kitchen and shelter in New Hampshire will soon be one of the first in the Northeast to be powered by solar energy.

The board of the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter (NSKS) which assists thousands of low income people, has contracted with ReVision Energy for the installation and operation of a 39.3-kilowatt solar system. The 131 solar panels mounted on the organization’s roof in the city’s downtown will produce 43,080 kilowatts of electricity each year and reduce annual carbon pollution by more than 45,000 pounds annually. It is also will save the shelter $176,282 over the lifetime of the project.

NSKS Executive Director Michael Reinke said the project allows it to devote donor’s dollars to helping meet the community’s most basic needs.
