In 2010, Nexamp was awarded contracts to install solar photovoltaic systems at 13 water and wastewater treatment plants whose energy consumption was a huge drain on municipal budgets. The projects were completed under the Massachusetts Solar Stimulus (MaSS) initiative, funded through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.Every year, Massachusetts' 370 water and wastewater facilities consume more than 1 billion kilowatt-hours, emitting 1 million tons of carbon dioxide. Together, the 4.5 megawatts of solar plants installed across the 13 selected facilities save the Commonwealth $1.7 million a year.
