Engineer Richard Case will describe the hundreds of solar panels and dozens of batteries that furnish much of Star island’s power today. Off the New Hampshire coast, 10 miles from Portsmouth, Star Island in the Isles of Shoals is not connected to the mainland and must generate its own electricity. The talk is preceded by announcements of current and upcoming activities of the Isles of Shoals Historical and Research Association.
