Field Trip To the Solar Farm Site in Farmington!
Friends of Sustainability,

Thank you for taking interest in our Solar Farm Field Trip!

The Solar Farm Site in Farmington is a solar energy development by NextEra Energy based in Florida and its subsidiary, Farmington Solar LLC located near Horn Hill Road and Hovey Road, on a dairy farm. The Solar Farm site consists of 301,300 panels, making it the largest solar project in New England. By adding a stable source of additional energy into the New England market, the Farmington Solar Farm site has the potential to decrease costs locally and create greater energy efficiency.

The Farmington Site is a renewable energy venture partaken by Bowdoin, and other leading institutions of higher learning, as a major part of its commitment to sustainability and clean energy future. Bowdoin, Williams, Amherst, Smith, and Hampshire Colleges banded their resources together to invest in an expansion on the Farmington site. This is an important collaboration, and one of the innovations that has helped Bowdoin achieve carbon neutrality. Bowdoin will eventually begin purchasing some of the electricity produced by the farm, leading to an offset of thousands of metric tons of carbon. This will allow Bowdoin to decrease its purchase of carbon offsets and RECs that are associated with other projects. Isn't that amazing?

Come check out the farm with us at 12 pm on Friday, May 3rd!
PLEASE Please wear appropriate clothing for marching around a muddy field!

We will leave the Polar Bear statue at 12 (12:30 at the latest) and return by 6 pm on May 3rd. Seats will be on a first RSVP'd first served basis, with a waitlist if necessary.

Much love,
Juliette & Maynor

If there are concerns about accessibility, our hosts are able to tailor the tour to participant preferences. Would walking through rough and/or muddy terrain be a challenge for you? (Getting muddy is to be expected and does not count as a physical barrier to participation.) *
