N.K. is home to region’s largest rooftop array

Posted:

NORTH KINGSTOWN – Rhode Island is home to New England’s most powerful solar rooftop array, The Associated Press reported last week.

Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee was scheduled to attend a ceremony to help ‘‘flip the switch’’ last week at the new 8,500-panel array, which is on top of two former Navy buildings at Quonset Business Park.

According to the AP, the array is the size of three-and-a-half football fields and will generate nearly 3 million kilowatt-hours per year, making it the most powerful rooftop array in the region.

The array was built by Nexamp Inc., a solar-power producer. •
