The Vineyard Electric Cooperative (CVEC) announced that it had awarded its Round II PV contract to Broadway Electrical and Cape, which consists of two tiers of PV installations that amount to 49.37MW of PV capacity. Broadway will design and install 44 PV systems throughout the Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard regions, helping to supply the areas municipal companies’ electricity at a fixed kWh rate for 20 years.
“CVEC selected Broadway Electrical as its partner for round II of the PV contract because of their wide-ranging track record in facilities around New England, their comprehensive approach to solar projects, and their strong record in meeting performance guarantees. We’re looking forward to the project’s outcomes and the collaboration the partnerships represent,” said Charles McLaughlin, president and Town of Barnstable director, Cape & Vineyard Electric Cooperative. “This project, along with the existing renewable energy efforts of CVEC member towns, counties, and the Cape Light Compact’s energy efficiency program, are significant contribution towards a sustainable Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard. The groundwork laid by this project and its project investors will pay great dividends for our town in the years to come.”
CVEC will see that Broadway has the rights to design, procure, install, test, commission, own, operate and maintain the 44 PV sites. Broadway will additionally be responsible for all permits and approvals necessary for the various systems, including MA DEP post-closure use of landfills.
