New Solar Array at Landfill to Deliver Clean Energy, Save City Big Dollars

Please join us Friday, September 8, 2017, at 2 p.m. for the ribbon cutting of our 3.4-MW DC Solar Array at the Woburn Landfill, located at 200 Merrimac Street.

We take a great deal of pride in this creative, collaborative project, which transforms an essentially unused piece of property into both a reliable, clean source of energy and big savings for the City.

For instance, the Landfill Solar Array is projected to produce 4,349,000 kWh of electricity annually, and generate more than $370,000 a year in savings for the City. We are also proud to announce the 271 kW Solar Array at the Kennedy Middle School was activated on March 28, 2017, and is projected to generate more than 300,000 kW of electricity–saving the Woburn School Department in excess of $23,000 yearly.

I would like to recognize the efforts of our partner, Greenwood Energy Developers, a privately-owned company focused on solar development and financing. Greenwood has a successful track record with 29 projects across six states, predominately in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions.

Hope to see you there!
