The Dorchester project is located in a prominent location in Greater Boston, next to the famous multicolored liquefied natural gas tank (LNG). This was formerly a manufactured gas plant site, and as a result the land is contaminated and has limited reuse capability, making it ideal for a solar project. The panels can easily seen from Route I-93, showing Boston as a city that is serious about its renewable energy goals. This is the largest of our projects. The project is currently up and running.
Over a 30 year period, this system is expected to save approximately 4,000 pounds of sulfur dioxide, 1,800 pounds of nitrous oxide, and 1.8 million pounds of carbon dioxide. This is equivalent to the emissions produced in generating electricity for 260 average households.
The site includes 4,466 solar panels spread out over 6 acres of land. This project is designed to generate 1250 kW of DC power, which will yield nearly 1500 MWh per year. All panels are mounted on the ground with a fixed inclination and position.
