Broadway Renewable Strategies, a full-service electrical construction company, has inaugurated a 568.7 kW rooftop PV array on Drydock Avenue in Boston's Innovation District.
Broadway Renewable Strategies, Cargo Venture/Millennium Partners, The Boston Redevelopment Authority and Satcon collaborated on the project as part of Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino's Innovation District Solar Challenge.
The project, which was installed under a PPA between Broadway Renewable Strategies and Cargo Ventures, received the Commonwealth Solar Stimulus Award in the amount of $471,780 from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, with no upfront capital investment required.
Broadway Renewable Strategies was selected as the developer, with Broadway Electrical Co. Inc. as the contractor, and Satcon was selected by Broadway to provide the inverters.
‘Solar power is now more affordable than ever in the city,’ notes Menino. ‘It's being installed on residences, businesses and municipal buildings at an increasing rate, and we are on the way to meeting our 2015 goal of 25 megawatts of solar energy in Boston.’
