Solar energy projects coming before Attleboro board

More and more electricity-generating solar panels are appearing on the rooftops of homes and businesses, and in vacant fields and once wooded areas. Now it looks like they will soon be installed over parking lots as well. Plans for the city’s new $260 million high school include solar panel arrays on covered parking stalls, and a South Main Street shopping center is planning to do the same. Attleboro Crossing at 219 South Main St. has an application before the zoning board of appeals for two special permits and a variance it needs to build roofs over its approximately 200 parking spaces and install the panels. Greenskies Renewable Energy out of Middletown, Conn. would build the array at the 97,720-square-foot shopping center, which includes a Seabra supermarket and sits on 8.9 acres just south of downtown.
