Blackstone takes another look at solar power farm

July 12, 2014

BLACKSTONE – Saying it’s time for Blackstone to get on the solar power bandwagon, Board of Selectmen Chairman Russell L. Wells wants his board to revisit the idea of constructing a solar farm in Blackstone to help the town save money on energy costs.

Wells, who was elected to the board in April, says it’s time for the board to start that process over again.
