Solon has locked a contract with Rivermoor Energy and Fischbach & Moore, on behalf of the National Grid, to supply its solar modules for the 1MW solar PV project in Haverhill, Massachusetts. Construction has been started by Rivermoor Energy and Fischbach & Moore for a scheduled completion date sometime this fall. The project will generate 1,016kW of direct current power per year. Around 3,696 Solon ground-mounted panels were installed over five acres.
“We are pleased to have selected the SOLON-Rivermoor Energy-Fischbach team to supply materials and expertise for our Haverhill solar site as we continue development of our solar projects under Massachusetts’ Green Communities Act,” said Fouad Dagher, renewable energy program manager for National Grid. “The project supports the solar industry both in materials and in providing green jobs in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We’ve already completed one site in Whitinsville, Mass. Haverhill is next, and three more sites are underway, for a total of five megawatts of solar generation.”
