Community Solar comes to the Berkshires

There was another recent good article about the benefits of community solar in Franklin County’s daily newspaper, The Recorder, in Greenfield, Massachusetts, one of the oldest newspapers in the country. It states, “Instead of growing food crops, it’s growing energy – solar energy. Just as community-sustained agriculture is gaining prominence, this solar farm is supporting and is supported by the local community. The state of Massachusetts has a program to make sure that local residents benefit from this new sort of agriculture, called Community Solar.”

It goes on to point out that this opportunity is limited, “Perhaps the biggest restriction is that this program and this Community Solar Farm have limited availability. The end of this program has been announced. There is likely to be a follow-on program, but it’s designed to have smaller incentives as these Community Solar Farms become more prevalent. So, once this one’s full, it’s not clear when the next Community Solar Farm might be built and whether the financial incentive will be this good. Customers who get in now stand to benefit for the life of the solar farm. Customers are placed on a first-come, first-served basis.
