Major Energy Builds First Solar Power Plant


New York-based Major Energy has completed a 2.5 MW solar photovoltaic array in Palmer, Mass., with the energy being sold to the University of Massachusetts under a 30-year power purchase agreement.

The ground-mounted system, which was interconnected with National Grid last December, was built on 24 acres and consists of 8,500 300-W solar panels spread over 772 strings. The system is expected to produce 3.25 GWh of electricity per year.

A website displaying the power produced by the solar array in real time can be found here.
