Winter Construction on Challenging Slopes

In 2014, Nexamp completed work on this ground-mount project in Methuen, Massachusetts. Because the project was located on a parcel straddling the town line between Methuen and Haverhill, Nexamp’s development team filed permits with both towns in parallel. Set on a reverse slope, with the highest point in the south and the lowest point to the north, Ayers Village Solar was built through record-setting snowfall and subzero temperatures. We leveraged our operational efficiencies and previous deep winter experience to meet an aggressive construction schedule. The site’s steep slopes necessitated creative ground screw racking solutions and advanced erosion controls. Successful interconnection required coordination with two utilities for substation shutdowns and witness testing. The energy produced by the plant delivers significant long-term utility cost savings to the Greater Lawrence Sanitary District through a net metering credit purchase agreement
