MetroWest Daily News: “State stimulus czar lauds Ashland projects”

Kendall Hatch, August 12, 2010. The man in charge of overseeing the distribution of federal stimulus money in Massachusetts says he’s impressed with Ashland using its share to fund energy- and cost-saving improvements.

Jeffrey Simon, director of the Massachusetts Recovery & Reinvestment Office, stopped first at the Department of Public Works building on Ponderosa Road and then at the Howe Street Water Treatment Facility to see the fruits of the $486,000 in stimulus funding awarded to the town for energy improvements.

The cash was used to install a 120-panel solar array on the roof of the DPW building as well as replace and improve operations and efficiency at the treatment plant. [Nexamp note: This project is one of the 12 water/wastewater treatment plants for which Nexamp and Florence Electric are installing solar arrays.] Link to Article
