Green Street Power Partners has completed the construction of a 3 MW community solar project, located on a landfill in Raynham, Massachusetts. The plant will benefit the consumers of Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant.

The system which spreads across a span of 14-acre parcel is expected to produce about 3.5 GWh annually.

Participation in the program was limited to the first 400 qualified applicants who signed up and whose accounts were in good standing. The limit was reached in 4.5 hours over 2 days, several hundred additional customers have been placed on a waiting list.

Qualified participants will receive a $5 credit on their monthly invoice for the duration of the program which is expected to run from January 2019 to December 2028.

According to TMLP General Manager Kenneth Goulart, “I’m thrilled the residents of Raynham are willing to participate in our first ever Community Solar program. The overwhelming response to fill all slots in less than 4.5 hours is telling. This is a win-win for our customers because they get to support a green initiative and save money.”

“The Raynham Board of Selectmen are pleased to be able to assist TMLP with reduced monthly bills for our residential taxpayers. This seems like a winning commitment.” Said David Flaherty, Jr. the Raynham Town Administrator.
