U.S. Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, right, and Maine Audubon Exectutive Director Charles Gauvin survey a new solar array Friday, March 20, at Maine Audubon’s Gilsland Farm headquarters in Falmouth. The array, which features more than 150 individual panels at several locations, will annually produce an estimated 74,000 kWh of electricity, or about 80 percent of Audubon’s needs. Through a partnership with Maine Audubon, Moody’s Collision Centers, of Portland, paid for the installation and will own the array for the next six years. Maine Audubon will purchase electricity from Moody’s during that time. At the end of that period, Maine Audubon has the option to buy the array outright.
