Roy Morrison

Roy Morrison is a solar energy developer, Managing Partner of SunPartnersSolar, author, social theorist, and activist. His latest e-book The New Green Republic is now available on Amazon, for kindle and in paperback.

Roy Morrison has more than 40 years of diverse energy experience. This includes energy efficiency work and technical assistance for businesses, institutions, and the government.

He was the Founding Director of the Office for Sustainability SNHU. and wrote the first law in the nation for municipal aggregation under retail electric competition.

He also founded the NH Consumers Utility Cooperative, the first seller of competitive electricity in NH, and was a founding staff member of the UNH Energy Office.

He was a safe energy activist with the Clamshell Alliance in the 1970s and 1980s, co-founder of the American Peace Test, and staff for the Nuclear Freeze Campaign in the 1980s.

He is the author of Sustainability Sutra and The New Green Republic and several other books.

Roy Morrison helped edit the Hangzhou Declaration for a Global Ecological Civilization. His Chinese associates inform him that he was the first person to use the term Ecological Civilization in his 1995 book, Ecological Democracy.

His latest work focuses on ways of making economic growth mean ecological improvement and developing means to value ecological sustainability and sustainability as the new gold through the use of a new regulatory asset, Sustainability Credits (SCs). SCs to be monetized on the books of banks as paid-in capital and as cash to be used for further renewable investments on a multi-trillion dollar scale.

Roy Morrison is working on building solar farms in MA and NY with a concentration on single-phase ground-mounted systems with 150 kw Ac/216kw DC that his firm pioneered in Eversource East on both single and three-phase feeders to expand the viability of ground-mounted solar systems. He’s working on dual-use agricultural solar projects, solar is on raised racking above pasture and crops, to allow farms to use solar while remaining productive farms. Farms have the potential to become a major source for farm solar installations nationally and internationally.

The renewable energy future can be shaped by large dual-use solar systems on working farms in megawatt-scale 7MW combined with on-site storage.

In NH, Roy Morrison is working with Town based Community Solar groups to not only purchase wholesale power but to take advantage of the tax benefits of the new Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) that can permit up to 50% Investment Tax Credit for community power. The renewable systems would provide wholesale power and when tax equity is exhausted in year six, the energy users can become energy owners of their renewable systems. Income from the money they pay to buy the power combined with low-interest Town revenue bonds can allow energy users to become energy owners on a large scale.

SunPartnersSolar can work with landowners, farmers, towns and cities on solar development including allowing energy users to become energy owners.
