Repurposing an old Navy base as Maine’s largest solar array

A Portland developer wants to build Maine’s largest solar power array at a former Navy radar site in Hancock County. But the project will hinge on lawmakers creating financial incentives for solar power.

Gouldsboro Solar LLC will announce Wednesday that it has signed a letter of intent with The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor to sell the power from a 2.8 megawatt solar installation to the biomedical research lab.

The project would feature 9,500 panels covering roughly 12 acres at the former Navy base. It would generate enough power each year to serve 500-600 average Maine homes.
