Status: Completed

Size: 3.2MW

Staff from Bristol Community College (BCC) unveiled the largest solar canopy in New England to date, a 3.2MW installation that will cover 800 parking spaces over two hectares on BCC’s Fall River Campus.

Developed through a partnership between SunEdison and PowerOptions, the site will produce 34 million kWh of energy per year and will generate enough power to cover half of the campus’ electricity needs. Over the next 20 years, the college is expected to net around US$1.75 million in savings.

BCC has already signed off on a 20-year power purchase agreement with SunEdison in regards to the project, while operation and maintenance duties will be provided by SunEdison Services.
