Dynamic Energy Solutions and Revolution Energy have announced the completion of a series of solar projects with a combined capacity of 1.6MW in Massachusetts.
The most recently competed project in the companies’ portfolio is a 487kW solar array on the municipal landfill in the town of Fairhaven.
Dynamic Energy, Blue Sky Power and Heliosage developed the project, while Revolution Energy financed the project and will own and operate it under a power purchase agreement with Fairhaven.
Under a 30-year operation contract, the project is estimated to generate enough electricity to save approximately US$1.5 million on the residents’ electricity bills.
Brian Bowcock, Chairman of the Board of Selectmen for the town of Fairhaven, said: “The town of Fairhaven is proud to partner with Dynamic Energy and establish a solar power array on our closed landfill. Massachusetts DEP, as well as Massachusetts CIC, has promoted the development of solar projects such as this one as a way of making closed landfills useful to the community, as well as a viable renewable energy resource.”
The Fairhaven project is a ground-mounted ballasted solar array, which consists of more than 2,000 solar panels on the closed municipal landfill.
During the construction phase, Dynamic Energy acted as a turnkey provider of engineering, commissioning and constructing services.
Michael Perillo, CEO of Dynamic Energy said: “Dynamic Energy is honoured to team with Revolution Energy and the town of Fairhaven on this energy project. I also want to thank our construction partners, we are proud to work with such a high quality group of professionals.”
