Seacoast Online reports that the nonprofit Star Island Corp., which maintains a hotel and conference center in the Isles of Shoals, will host an informative presentation on the innovative environmental initiatives under way at Star Island. The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at the Discover Portsmouth Center at 10 Middle St.

 

The presentation will focus on the island’s new solar-power installation, which is New England’s largest off-grid photovoltaic array. The system will produce an estimated 60% of the island’s energy needs beginning this summer. Also highlighted are Star Island’s programs for energy and water conservation and reuse.
