Dover High School rooftop solar system

Dover, NH In a PPA solar project between ReVision Energy of Brentwood and the city of Dover, Ayer Electric, Inc., based in Barrington, has provided the installation of the 913kW rooftop solar system at Dover High School.

The solar PV system, the largest roof-mounted solar array in New Hampshire, went online in July.

The NECA Boston Chapter/New Hampshire Division contractors scope included installing 2,850 320-watt solar panels, 1432 solar optimizers, eight SolarEdge inverters, and a data acqusition system (DAS) along with a complete weather station that monitors wind, outside temperature, panel temperature and sun irradiance.

Ayer Electrics team of 24 IBEW Local 490 electricians, headed by project manager Marc Wiemer, commenced work in February and completed the project in June.  At the outset of the project, the NECA contractor worked through harsh winter conditions in order to meet the project scope and timeline.

The new solar system is designed to produce an estimated 1.5 million kWh of solar electricity annually, approximately 40% of the school’s power usage.
