Hancock, Mass.-based solar developer Nexamp has acquired the rights to build a 2.3 MW community solar project on the grounds of Jiminy Peak Mountain Resort, a ski area also located in Hancock.
The project, which will cover 12 acres of the resort's property, was originally developed by EOS Ventures. When the ground-mount array comes online this fall, it will join Jiminy Peak's existing 1.5 MW wind turbine and 75 kWh cogeneration unit.
Nexamp plans to enroll nearby customers in its Solarize My Bill community solar program.
‘Solar is truly a community investment,’ says Zaid Ashai, CEO of Nexamp. ‘Smart policies like net metering in Massachusetts allow us to work with great partners like Jiminy Peak to meet their sustainability goals, provide local jobs and infrastructure investment, and deliver significant energy savings to neighboring consumers.’
