Built on a portion of 6.8 acres of previously unused land near Interstate 95, this project generates new tax revenue for the town of Richmond, while producing enough solar energy to power over 100 homes. The Richmond Solar project supported at least 25 new jobs for Rhode Islanders during its construction in 2015. Moreover, the installation provides a learning laboratory to students of the Chariho Regional School District Career and Technical Center, who gain real-world insight into the growing role of renewables in the state’s energy mix. This project marked our third megawatt of constructed projects in the Ocean State.
