This 3.2-megawatt solar plant located in Hubbardston, Massachusetts, provides about $125,000 in annual electricity savings to the Town of Westford through a 20- year net metering agreement. As with all power purchase agreements, energy users are under no obligation to own the land or the system or pay for maintenance—they simply lock in predictable, long-term electricity prices.
[Net metering is] a way to reduce costs without making any investments. There's no project in town, it's just a financial transaction. There's low overhead and it's a significant opportunity for savings.
