Kearsarge Chicopee (Chicopee, MA)
After conducting a detailed assessment of various renewable energy alternatives and potential siting options, Kearsarge worked with a $30 billion publicly-traded healthcare products company’s local and national energy management and operations teams and a quasi-public regional economic development corporation to develop this 870 kW DC ground-mounted system. The project is located in Chicopee, Massachusetts adjacent to a major medical supplies manufacturing plant and an operating air base. Kearsarge coordinated project design, interconnection, and net metering policy with the local Municipal Light Department. The project’s host will achieve significant energy cost savings while supporting its industry-leading corporate renewable energy goals and commitment to the local community. Commercial Operations began June 2014.
