Agilitas Energy has completed construction on a 7.3-MW solar/9.5-MWh storage system in Auburn, Massachusetts, that is classified as a community solar project under the state’s Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target (SMART) program.
The company says several hundred organizations, including Sturdy Memorial Hospital, have signed long-term power purchase agreements for the project that guarantee energy savings for the next two decades.
Agilitas Energy has also acquired a construction-ready, front-of-the-meter PV and energy storage project in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. The 5.8-MW solar/9-MWh storage project will be sited alongside 45 acres of open space for permanent conservation. Agilitas will also donate more than $10,000 for the construction of a parking area to support access to the trail network on site.
“Programs like SMART make a noticeable difference in empowering cost-effective solar development, and we’re confident these projects will help bring predictable, low-cost, clean energy to the communities that need it – other states should look to replicate what Massachusetts has done,” said Barrett Bilotta, President of Agilitas Energy. “Along those lines, we’re proud of the solar and storage projects we’ve built in our home state and across New England, and with our recent capital raise, we’re looking to replicate our success with utilities and municipalities throughout the U.S.”
