About the Project:

After installing a 10-kilowatt wind turbine in 2003, Maple Hill Farm Inn and Conference Center went solar in a big way at the end of 2006 with the installation of a large photovoltaic (PV) system and solar hot water array, the largest in Maine at the time. 

Energy monitoring provided to the school by the Solar 4R Schools program made the live performance data from their PV system available for educational purposes. 
An educational display board is mounted just outside the conference room for guests to learn more about the solar and wind systems in great detail. Maple Hill Farm was named "Best Bed and Breakfast" in the Augusta, Maine area for 2007 by Market Surveys of America, and is certified as an "Environmental Leader" lodging establishment by the Maine Department of Environmental Protection.
