Spire Corp., a provider of turnkey module production lines and engineering, procurement and construction integration services for solar systems, has begun the construction of a 2 MW, eight-acre solar PV system at the Berkshire School in Sheffield, Mass.
Spire is developing the system in collaboration with PowerPlay Solar, developer of the project, for the nonprofit private high school. The Berkshire School's mission is to become carbon neutral by 2016.
According to Spire, upon completion, the 2 MW project will generate over 2,300 MWh per year of electricity, enough to power 40% of the school.
