NRG Announces New Community Solar Project in Massachusetts
NRG Energy, Inc. announced that its renewables business’ newest community solar facility in Massachusetts has been completed in Pepperell, Mass.
The community solar farm -- The Nashua Road Solar Project -- has a rated capacity of 1.3 megawatts dc (1MW ac) and is comprised of more than 4,000 solar photovoltaic panels. It will deliver enough clean power to serve the energy needs of 170 residential customers in the region and is already 100% subscribed.
The new site follows the company’s similarly-sized project in Freetown, Mass.
Subscribers to the Nashua Road facility entered into a 20-year agreement with NRG Community Solar that provides price stability and projected savings, NRG said. Customers earn credits toward their energy bill based on their allocation of renewable energy net metering credits that are generated by the project each billing cycle.
