Town of Fairhaven, MA
Energy cost savings of $1.5 million over 30 years
Dynamic Energy and Revolution Energy completed a 487 kW solar array on the municipal Fairhaven Landfill located in the Town of Fairhaven, Massachusetts.
Revolution Energy provided a Power Purchase Agreement, allowing the Town of Fairhaven to avoid all the expenses associated with solar system ownership. Dynamic Energy, along with Blue Sky Power and Heliosage, developed the project, and Revolution Energy financed, owns, operates and maintains the system – the Town purchases the generated solar electricity at rates lower than those of the local utility. The electricity produced by the solar system is expected to save the town approximately $1.5 million over the course of the 30 year contract.
The Fairhaven solar project involved the installation of a ground-mounted ballasted solar array consisting of more than 2,000 solar panels on the closed municipal landfill. Dynamic Energy provided turnkey services, including engineering, procurement and construction, and assembled an exceptional team with significant landfill experience for the complex project.
