Lowell Sun: Governor hailed as champion of solar energy at Westford park

WESTFORD — Gov. Deval Patrick flipped the switch on the largest privately owned solar park in New England yesterday and acknowledged the state is committed to reaching its solar-energy goals set in 2008.

A 4.5-megawatt solar-panel field known as Westford Solar Park, with more than 14,000 panels, sits on 22 acres in a former quarry on Route 40 near Route 3. It was developed by Boston-based Cathartes Private Investments and solar-energy producer Nexamp.

The park celebrated its first phase of completion in October.
A report released this week by Mass Inc., an independent, nonpartisan think tank, assessed the state’s response to climate change. It gave recommendations needed to reach Patrick’s goal of reducing greenhouse-gas emissions 25 percent from 1990 levels by 2020.
