Residential solar photovoltaic systems are becoming increasingly popular on Nantucket as a way to promote sustainability and reduce demands on the electrical grid. However, there has been little attention paid to small-scale, off grid solar systems. ReMain Nantucket sponsored this project to research the feasibility of small-scale, off-grid solar applications on Nantucket with the goal of increasing public awareness of solar power. We interviewed key stakeholders across the island, researched current practices in solar power, and distributed a public survey to better understand the public’s opinion on solar power, as well as several possible solar applications. We conclude by recommending applications and incentives for ReMain to pursue.
