Located on a former MGP site on Hilldale Avenue, the Haverhill solar project is located in a residential setting. It is connected to a partially loaded 13 kV residential feeder, and provides information about the viability of matching residential loads with solar generation. The site also serves to conduct load switching with neighboring feeders, providing us with additional flexibility in serving customers in this area. Many residents and government officials have been extremely supportive of the plan. The project is currently up and running.
Construction of the project is estimated to save approximately 2,900 pounds of sulfur dioxide, 1,300 pounds of nitrous oxides, and 1.4 million pounds of carbon dioxide per year. This is equivalent to the emissions produced in generating electricity for 200 average homes.
This project is designed to generate 1016 kW of DC power, accounting for approximately 1,202 MWh per year. This installation includes 3,565 panels spanning over 5 acres of land. The panels are mounted on the ground with a fixed inclination and position.
