    This event is free and open to the public - everyone is welcome to attend. Whether you are a solar owner, completely new to solar, or somewhere in between – this event is for you. Stop by for a few or stay for a while!

    In 2019, in partnership with Kasselman Solar, and through grants from National Grid and the USDA, Riverside Maple Farms installed solar panels, providing 100% of the farm's electrical power from renewable sources.

    The 140 solar panels generate the carbon equivalent of saving 50 acres of US forests per year and helps sustain the farm's most important natural resource, their trees. The panels generate 60 Megawatts of power allowing the farm to make the maple syrup, run the kitchen, and keep the lights on for visitors to see how maple is made from tree to table.
