National Grid Gets Green Light For Five Projects In Mass.


National Grid has received approval from the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities (DPU) to start construction of 5 MW of solar generation on five company-owned sites in Massachusetts.

National Grid's solar development program includes building and owning solar installations across the state at the following National Grid-owned locations: Victory Road, in Dorchester (1.3 MW); Rover Street, in Everett (0.6 MW); Hilldale Avenue, in Haverhill (1 MW); Railroad Street, in Revere (0.7 MW); and at National Grid's distribution center, on the Sutton-Northridge line (1.2 MW).

The five projects are in varying stages of development. Site work at two of the locations is scheduled to begin this fall. The company plans to complete the requests for proposals and the awarding of contracts for installation at the other locations by the end of the year.

When implemented, the installations will generate the equivalent of powering approximately 1,000 homes for one year and will eliminate over 3,000 tons of carbon dioxide each year, National Grid adds.
