Locally Produced Clean, Renewable Energy for the Future of Our Children and Our Communities
olar energy is abundant, knows no borders, does not require large quantities of water, and does not pollute our atmosphere.

Massachusetts is a leader in the development of solar photovoltaic power plants. As a result of the Green Community Act, net metering and the solar carve out (SREC program), numerous solar developments are occuring across the state. Blackcomb and Quabbin Solar have been on the leading ege of this development with 5.4 MWs currently on line and 2.5 MWs in development

Harness the Power of the Sun

he benefits of solar powared electricity can be addressed from three critical perspectives:

Economic
Development of solar PV power plants in your community promotes:
  • job growth
  • tax base
  • building fees
  • reduced electrical costs in some cases

Social
The development of photovoltaic solar arrays:
  • enables domestic energy production
  • supports job creation and industry growth
  • reduces demand on the utility electrical grid which leads to overall higher regional grid stability

Environmental
By supporting the generation of electricity through solar, clients are utilizing electricity from a source that:
  • has no ongoing fuel requirements
  • makes no noise
  • discharges no pollutants for its 40+ years of operational life

The Green Communities Act of 2008
  • Green Communities Act passed into legislation in 2008
  • Act creates opportunity for renewable energy generators to receive "credits" for all electricity generated
  • Credits are called "net-metering credits"
  • GCA allows for generator of net-metering credits to "assign" credits to a third party
  • Solar carveout provides a floor price for SRECs, assuming stability for solar developers
Solar Power Has Great Potential
Solar power is capable of becoming a major contributor to America’s electricity supply over the next three decades, according to a report by the U.S. Department of Energy
