New Braintree Solar

location:

New Braintree, MA

size:

660 Kilowatts

The first commercial-scale solar project built in the town, New Braintree Solar generates much needed tax revenue for the agricultural Central MA community. This community solar project transforms underutilized land into a source of local electricity generation and cost savings for 40+ area residents and small businesses without permanently altering the landscape. After the 25+ year productive lifetime of the panels, the land will be returned to its original state, having generated substantial lease revenue for the local small business that owns the parcel. Nexamp is currently working with adjacent landowners to install additional community solar arrays that further expand access to the benefits of solar to energy users that cannot take advantage of on-site PV generation.
