Solar Power World – Ameresco Developing 930-kW Capped Landfill Solar Project in Massachusetts
Ameresco will design and develop a solar energy project that prioritizes environmental stewardship and responsible reuse of public land
Ameresco will install a 930-kWdc ground-mounted solar system at Hamilton, Massachusetts’s capped landfill. This project is expected to save Hamilton an estimated $287,000 in energy costs over the 20-year Power Purchase Agreement (PPA), and use otherwise undeveloped land.
“As a rural-suburban community, we deeply value sustainability and view renewable energy not only as an opportunity but as an imperative,” said Timothy J. Olson, director of public works in Hamilton. “We selected Ameresco to be our partner in this solar project because of the team’s experience and proven expertise in developing renewable energy projects for communities like ours, and in closed landfill settings.”
