NRG Energy has announced the completion of its community solar facility in Pepperell, Massachusetts. The installation will provide electricity to residential customers.
The Nashua Road Solar Project has a capacity of 1.3 MW and includes more than 4,000 photovoltaic (PV) panels. It will service 170 residential customers and is already 100 percent subscribed.
“Going solar has never been easier or more affordable,” said Drew Warshaw, Vice President of Community Solar, NRG. “If your roof faces north instead of south, if you have a tree you don’t want to cut down or if you simply don’t want solar panels on your roof, community solar is a great solution. It gives you long-term savings, price stability to avoid spikes in your utility bill and the chance to support clean energy – all without doing anything to your house.”
Subscribers to the wind farm entered into a 20-year agreement with NRG that provides price stability and projected savings.
