Soltage LLC has completed the 4.75MW Bird Machine Solar Farm on a brownfield in Walpole, Massachusetts.
"Turning brownfields into brightfields is an ideal solution for municipalities like Walpole across Massachusetts and across the country," said Jesse Grossman, CEO of Soltage. "Walpole has shown real environmental and economic leadership by enabling this project which will help spur local economic development and create strong environmental benefits. By installing solar on brownfields, we're lowering power costs for local communities, creating jobs, and contributing to local economy."
"Solar is an excellent solution for brownfields. I am pleased to see that the former manufacturing area is now being put to good use producing clean, affordable solar energy. This is a win-win for Walpole," said Jim Johnson, Walpole Township Administrator. "Soltage has been a great partner on this project throughout."
"We are pleased to be part of a successful project like this, turning brownfield sites into solar fields that generate renewable energy at a competitive price," said Tim Hemig, Tenaska Senior Vice President. "With Bird Machine, Soltage continues to demonstrate its leadership in forward-thinking distributed solar generation."
