Green Street Solar Power, a solar sales, finance and installation company located in the Bronx, N.Y., has begun construction on a 4.1 MW rooftop solar PV system in West Bridgewater, Mass.

Located on an industrial flex building, the system will be net metered to offset 75% of the electrical load of the entire public school system in Attleboro, Mass. Green Street Solar Power plans to own and operate the system long term.

“We are thrilled about going solar with Green Street,” said Marc Furtado, director of finance for the Attleboro Public Schools. “Not only will the district save millions over the life of the system, but we’re having a positive impact on the environment and setting a great example for our nearly 6,000 students.”

As one of the largest single rooftop commercial solar installations in the U.S., the system’s clean energy is projected to save Attleboro more than $3.5 million over 25 years.

Scott Kerner, Green Street’s CEO, notes, “It’s projects like West Bridgewater that remind us why we got into the solar business. It’s incredibly rewarding to know that ultimately this project is benefiting kids, and we’re honored that the project will provide Attleboro schools with clean, reliable power for a generation.”

Seminole Financial Services provided financing for the project. Chris Diaz, principal at Seminole, stated, “The West Bridgewater Solar System is an excellent example of the positive impact solar can have on local schools and municipalities. Seminole is proud to be a part of this project with a great developer like Green Street.”
