CSC currently has a 30-year lease with the State of NH at its current site on Pleasant St. That lease is due to expire in 2013. In order to upgrade our facility and increase operational efficiencies, we have determined that we will need a site that is larger than the current one. The site on South Main St. will allow us to meet those additional space requirements with little or no impact on the surrounding community.
The expansion plans include expanding electric generating ability from the current 2 megawatts (MW) to 18 MW. Currently, our load base runs about 4 months per year - through the heaviest heating months. Expanding our load base to be productive 12 months per year stabilizes the income stream, and will result in about a 30% reduction in cost for our existing customers.
The proposed location is the site of the historic Boston and Maine railroad maintenance yards on South Main Street, also known locally as the Concord Industrial Park.
