Renewables and storage project investor C2 Energy Capital announced the successful completion and operation anniversary of the largest community solar project in southeastern Massachusetts.
The PV plant is fully subscribed and is part of regional utility Middleborough Gas and Electric Department’s (MGED) Community Shared Solar Program.
“Our team embeds its high-quality control standards in every step of a solar project’s value chain, and that investment yielded a seamless launch of operations for Middleborough,” said Candice Michalowicz, co-founder and managing member of C2 Energy Capital. “MGED has foresight to deliver non-greenhouse gas emitting energy options to their customers, and they did an excellent job implementing the Community Solar Program.”
Working closely with the MGED, C2 Energy Capital developed, constructed and now owns the 3.3-MWdc (2.7-MWac) solar power plant located inside the city limits of the town of Lakeville. The company has over 22 community solar projects totaling more than 44 MW in operation or currently in construction in the United States.
“MGED is pleased to work with developers, such as C2 Energy Capital, to increase renewable energy resources in the region,” said Jacqueline Crowley, GM, MGED.
C2 Energy Capital’s community solar project sits on 15 acres of former farmland. As a part of the MGED Community Solar Program, it allows customers who want to support locally-produced clean energy — but aren’t able to install solar panels on their own home or business — the opportunity to share in the benefits of a large solar system installed within MGED’s service territory. The 340 participating customers in this MGED Solar Community project receive direct credits on their electric bills for the term of 10 years.
