Located on Rover Street in Everett, the project is located on a former manufactured gas plant site on Boston Gas Company-owned land. This solar project will be connected to National Grid's pilot program for Load Congestion Relief in the area. This is advantageous in helping us temporarily offset customer demand as the load in the area steadily increases. The land has little reuse capability, and thus is an ideal location for a solar development. This site will also test the effects of feeding a large proportion of PV-generated power into a conventionally-fed distribution system. The project is currently up and running.
Construction of the project is estimated to save approximately 1,700 pounds of sulfur dioxide, 790 pounds of nitrous oxides, and 820,000 pounds of carbon dioxide per year. This is equivalent to the emissions produced in generating electricity for 120 average homes.
This project is designed to generate 605 kW of DC power, accounting for approximately 716 MWh per year. This installation includes 2,123 panels spanning over 2.5 acres of land. The panels are mounted on the ground with a fixed inclination and position.
