A group of solar energy developers have completed a 3 MW solar power project for Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant (TMLP) in Berkley, Mass.
The Berkley East Solar Power Project is co-owned by Canadian Solar and INDU Solar Holdings – a joint venture between subsidiaries of Duke Energy and of Integrys Energy Services. The ground-mounted installation was developed by Community Energy Solar and constructed by groSolar using 15,624 Canadian Solar modules. TMLP is purchasing the power generated from the project under a 25-year agreement.
‘We're very pleased to announce the addition of this valuable resource to the TMLP power supply portfolio,’ says TMLP General Manager Michael Horrigan. ‘Our customers will benefit from the project by purchasing power at competitive rates and by the savings in transmission, line losses and generation costs with the reduction in TMLP load at or near peak times.’
