Catalyze, which develops, builds, owns, and operates solar, battery storage, and EV charging systems for commercial and industrial customers, and ACE Solar are collaborating on a 6.3 MW solar project in Blackstone, Massachusetts.
Located on a repurposed dairy farm in Blackstone MA, the project consists of 15,580 solar panels and a 3 MW / 6.4 mWh battery storage system. It is part of the MA Smart program and will commence commercial operations later this summer.
The 6.3 MW community solar project will provide affordable solar energy to surrounding residents and businesses, saving subscribers an average of 10% off of their current utility rate, while delivering a critical service to the community.
“The team at ACE is top-notch. They’re professional, delivered high-quality workmanship, and kept the project on-time and on-budget,” said Catalyze executive vice president of EPC, Rob Marchetti. “We already have a number of additional projects in the queue to work on with ACE Solar, and look forward to the continued partnership.”
“ACE Solar is pleased to partner with Catalyze, an industry leading innovator in the renewable energy space, to bring 6.3 MW of clean energy to the Blackstone area through the MA SMART program,” said ACE Director of Operations Eric McLean. “With the success of this project, we look forward to teaming-up with them on more projects moving forward.”
The project will produce enough solar energy each year to power 732 homes, and displaces 6,402 tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which is equivalent to the greenhouse gas emissions from 1,251 gas-powered cars.
