Turning a Driving Range into Renewable Income

When the owners of Evergreene Golf decided to retire, they worked with Nexamp to turn their driving range into a 1.5-megawatt solar plant. Built through one of the most challenging New England winters in recent history, this project will supply steady income to the landowners and the town. In addition, its electricity will be sold to the Upper Blackstone Water Pollution Abatement District through a long-term power purchase agreement (PPA).The solar farm will produce enough clean, sustainable energy to power more than 120 homes.

Project Benefits

  • Long-term lease brings income to both landowner and the town
