  • The installation of (470) 490W PV modules for a total array output of 230 KW

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. / Apr 24, 2024 / Business Wire / Ameresco, Inc., (NYSE: AMRC), a leading cleantech integrator specializing in energy efficiency and renewable energy, has today announced the installation of energy-efficient solar arrays designed to generate 230 KW across a total of (470) 490W PV modules in partnership with Wakefield Municipal Gas & Light Department (WMGLD).

The project is split into two separate systems, the first of which (Equipment Garage, Community Solar, Array A) boast a 124.5 kWp capacity installed in front of the meter for efficient off-site energy utilization by the local community. The second system (Office, Net Metered, Array B), a 106 kWp solar power capacity, positioned behind the meter for additional on-site energy system utilization, reliability, and flexibility.

“We are so thrilled that the construction of this important project is officially completed and are proud to be a partner to WMGLD on their sustainability journey,” said Pete Christakis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the East Region at Ameresco. “The clean energy transition wouldn’t be possible without the help of organizations committed to implementing sustainable infrastructure upgrades like solar energy solutions that can make a real difference, both in the short and long-term.”

The first and second arrays, with respective one-year production estimates of 143,400 kWh and 118,731 kW, were financed through both a community solar offtake program and via a Net Metering Feed in Tariff.

“Collectively, we are always looking for opportunities to maximize our environmental impact in line with our power supply decisions, and this collaboration with Ameresco represents a perfect opportunity for us to continue to find ways to support our clean power efficiency,” said Vinnie McMahon, Senior System Engineer at WMGLD. “This collaboration firmly aligns with our commitment to being a responsible leader and steward to the environment.”

Construction on the project began on Friday, November 3, and both systems were completed March 1st, 2024.
