The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) has selected Broadway Electrical Company Inc. as the regional solar developer for 17 cities and towns in greater Boston.
These municipalities are now eligible to enter into solar ‘energy management services’ agreements with Broadway, guaranteeing them low-cost solar energy for up to 20 years without the risks of owning and maintaining solar photovoltaic systems of their own, MAPC explains.
The 17 municipalities participating in MAPC's regional solar program are Belmont, Beverly, Boxborough, Brookline, Chelsea, Hudson, Lincoln, Marlborough, Medford, Medway, Melrose, Reading, Sherborn, Wayland, Weston, Weymouth and Winthrop.
Representatives from participating cities and towns reviewed responses and held in-person interviews before unanimously deciding on Broadway as their first choice for the regional solar provider. MAPC served in a facilitating role for the selection process, with support from the Cadmus Group, a strategic consulting group specializing in clean energy.
MAPC's agreement with Broadway stipulates that all participating cities and towns will be offered equal consideration, regardless of project size.
