Standard Solar, Inc. today announced an agreement with the Town of Burrillville, Rhode Island, to build a 4.2MW system that will be integrated into the Rhode Island Renewable Energy Growth Program.
The ground-mount project, utilizing key town property that will produce renewable energy for the community, will contain more than 11,000 solar modules and produce 5.3GWh of electricity. That's the CO2 equivalent of removing 3,104,708 pounds of CO2 from the atmosphere.
Standard Solar purchased the project from Boston-based Energy Management Inc. and will finance, own and operate the system. The project will provide electricity to the town and is expected be completed in March 2020.
"Rhode Island is a sleeping giant with the REG Program," said Scott Wiater, president and CEO, Standard Solar. "When Energy Management approached us with the possibility of being involved in a project in the state, we were thrilled. This project with the Town of Burillville mirrors several we have done for other towns up and down the Eastern Seaboard, so we were excited to add it to our ever-burgeoning portfolio."
