Canon Mountain Ski Area Increases Performance, Efficiency
The Cannon Mountain ski area in New Hampshire expects to reduce energy consumption by about 30 percent. At the same time, according to First Tracks!! Online Ski Magazine, snowmaking capabilities will increase.
Cannon Mountain is owned by the state, which signed a $5.1 million contract with Ameresco on the project. The measure include replacement of the main trunk power line house, transformer upgrades, installation of 388 high efficiency tower snowmaking guns and lighting and weatherization upgrades, the story says. The project is funded through the state’s energy performance contract with Ameresco. Savings from the project will pay off the bond in 16 years. The project began in July.
The state’s goal is to reduce energy consumption at the ski area by 50 percent by 2030.
The New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission (PUC) approved a comprehensive settlement agreement on July 1 that mandates the “expeditious” sale of Eversource-New Hampshire’s nine hydropower and three fossil fuel plants still operating in the Granite State – and paves the way, the PUC predicts, for long-term customer savings and rate stability.
