NAPS Provides Technical Support to Planning Commission

The Northumberland County Planning Commission is currently updating zoning regulations to include photovoltaic solar installations. NAPS member, Lee Allain, has been requested by the Commission Chairman to provide technical support to this effort.

With his background as an electrical engineer and his personal experience in the solar energy field, Allain is well qualified to provide assistance. In fact, as part of recent NAPS STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) activity, he mentored a NAPS Solar Grant to Northumberland High School. Under the grant, senior math students built a 120-watt solar panel that was subsequently used to charge students’ cell-phones. He has also written articles on solar collection for residences and is well familiar with solar’s application from home use to utility-scale solar farms…
