Bob Dunn, August 5, 2010. “We’re not just in the black by doing this, but in the green,” said Don Ellershaw.

Ellershaw, of the Northampton Cooperative Livestock Auction, was speaking to a small crowd gathered at the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new solar photovoltaic array installed on the cooperative’s building at 353 Long Plain Road.
