HOLLIS, Maine (AP) - The parent company of Poland Springs plans to build a 10-megawatt solar project on 47 acres of land in Hollis.

The proposed project would provide up to a quarter of the energy needs of the Poland Spring bottling plant.

The annual greenhouse gas emission reductions resulting from this project is estimated to be the equivalent to removing more than 2,500 passenger vehicles from the road.

Depending on timing for permits from both the town and Maine Department of Environmental Protection, the proposed groundbreaking could begin as soon as April, with project completion in 2022.
