Vivint Solar, a U.S. provider of distributed solar energy systems, and BlueWave, a Boston-based solar development and FinTech company, have formed an alliance to provide Massachusetts residents with the opportunity to become BlueWave community solar members.
Per the agreement, Vivint Solar and BlueWave will sell community solar memberships in southeastern and central Massachusetts, where BlueWave is building two solar farms. These projects, located in Oxford and Fairhaven, will provide electricity savings to approximately 250 customers as early as March 2016.
‘We love being able to provide more opportunities for people to go solar and know that community solar will be a solution for many households that are wanting the economical and environmental benefits of solar but may be facing some installation restrictions,’ says Jan Newman, senior vice president of business development at Vivint Solar.
Vivint Solar and BlueWave plan to expand community solar across Massachusetts and to take the product to new markets throughout the U.S. in 2016.
