With a population of less than 1,000 residents, Plainfield at one time faced the prospect of being forced to host a section of a controversial natural gas pipeline. Today, Plainfield is home to Plainfield Solar, a 2.7 MW community solar farm by Nexamp that provides clean, sustainable energy to the grid for area residents and other WMECO utility customers. The 16.8-acre site features 7,614 solar panels and can offset the energy needs of more than 350 average homes. In addition to renewable energy, this project brings cost savings and job opportunities to the community.
