Nexamp completes the largest community solar project in the U.S. Northeast

Share

Along with the growth of the U.S. residential solar market, community solar is an increasingly popular means to bring solar to Americans who do not own suitable roofspace for a PV installation. This includes renters, apartment dwellers and homeowners with shaded roofs.

As part of this trend, today Nexamp officially marked the conclusion of construction on a 2.3 MW community solar project in Western Massachusetts. The company calls the plant at the Jiminy Peak Resort the largest completed community solar plant in the U.S. Northeast, including New England and New York State.

Nexamp has already secured subscriptions from over 100 Massachusetts residents who will receive bill credits from the project, which is set to come online in the next few weeks. The company is offering a 15% discount from retail electricity prices through its Solarize My Bill program, which is available in the service areas of three Massachusetts utilities.

Nexamp is currently soliciting subscribers for another two projects in the state, at 2.1 and 2.6 MW. The company expects to complete these next two projects in the first few months of 2016.

The community solar market is expected to boom in the United States, and in June GTM Research forecast that this market segment will reach 500 MW annually by 2020. Already in 2015, GTM Research expects 115 MW of community solar to come online.
