SolarCity has provided the town of East Bridgewater, Mass., with a 2.45 MW photovoltaic power plant. The town pays SolarCity for the electricity at a discount rate.
The array has over 10,000 solar panels and is expected to produce more than 3 million kWh of electricity each year. Electricity generated by the solar field will be sent to National Grid and will result in net energy metering credits.
‘Massachusetts has benefited from a major increase in solar energy, thanks to projects like this one that protect our environment and create jobs,’ says Gov. Deval Patrick in a statement. ‘My thanks go out to the East Bridgewater community for their leadership in adopting these new technologies and investing in a clean energy future that will benefit generations to come.’
