Located atop the West Warwick Public Schools’ Benny Magiera Ice Rink and Thomas A. Lamb Memorial Field House, these two solar arrays feed enough clean energy into the local utility grid to power 50 homes and help the town meet its sustainability goals. The project is the first solar project in Rhode Island to utilize a public/private Virtual Net Metering agreement, whereby Nexamp will own the project while the Town of West Warwick will receive benefits from the generated electricity. Combined with three wind turbines, also under construction, this solar project will make the Town of West Warwick the first community in Rhode Island to meet 100% of its electricity needs with locally-sourced, locally-owned renewable energy.
