    • CULVERT REPLACEMENT ON NORTH ROAD : ROAD CLOSURE AND SIGNED DETOUR FROM NOV. 5 THROUGH NOV. 9

      Posted on Oct 29, 2018

      CULVERT REPLACEMENT ON NORTH ROAD IN BRENTWOOD

      ROAD CLOSURE AND SIGNED DETOUR FROM NOV. 5 THROUGH NOV. 9

       

      The New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) announces the planned installation of concrete culverts on North Road in Brentwood will require a five day closure of the road and a signed detour.  This project is a permanent fix for the failure of twin 30-inch corrugated metal culverts that occurred in March of 2018.

       

      Beginning Monday, November 5, 2018, North Road in Brentwood will be closed for five days for the installation of twin 48-inch reinforced concrete culverts that will carry an unnamed tributary to Dudley Brook. 

       

      The signed detour will follow the same route that was used last March for the temporary repairs.  Vehicles headed eastbound will detour to Prescott Road, NH Route 111A, Deer Hill Road then back onto North Road. Vehicles heading westbound will follow the same routes in the reverse direction. Detour signing will be installed along the detour route guiding traffic at key locations.  NH Route 125 will have electronic message boards in place informing northbound and southbound motorists of the detour.

    • Solar Array

      Posted on Sep 20, 2018

       

      In Brentwood we are leading the way for municipal energy security and environmental practices. Since August of 2017 we have made a smart investment and stepped up our sustainable practices by offsetting our electrical usage with solar panels. We worked with Brentwood, NH-based ReVision Energy [Link: https://www.revisionenergy.com/

       

      When the sun is shining, 434 solar panels in a ground-mounted array in front of the Brentwood Fire Station produce electricity that is used in real-time by the station as well as fed back to the grid where it benefits our community (and earns us a credit). Each year, the system will generate roughly 164,816 kilowatt-hours (kWhs) of electricity, offsetting 100% of our town's municipal electric load, with the exception of Swasey School. Not only will the array significantly reduce our carbon footprint, the electricity it generates will save our tax payers as much as $1 million over the life of the system. In its first full year, our array generated 177.43 MWh (177,430 kWh) of local, sustainable energy!

       

      The project was developed through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), which means that the town paid no upfront fee to install the solar panels. Instead, an investor (in this case, ReVision) pays for the upfront cost while the town pays for the power generated from the solar panels each month, instead of paying for power from the grid. After a period of time, the town can opt to buy the system from the investor (at a significantly reduced price) and own all the solar power generated outright!
