A new 500 kW solar project, built on a portion of 6.8 acres of previously unused land, is now operational in Richmond, R.I. The installation is the handy work of Nexamp, and the array will generate enough solar energy to power over 100 homes.

“This is an exciting day for the town of Richmond and its surrounding communities,” said Marion Gold, RI Office of Energy Resources Commissioner. “With this one project we are reducing energy consumption, utilizing previously unused space, offering educational opportunities for students of the Chariho Regional School District and protecting the environment. Public-private partnerships were key to making this concept a reality.”

To date, Nexamp has installed 3.1 MW of solar capacity in the State of Rhode Island, including an 8,500 panel array at the Quonset Business Park. Combined, these facilities produce enough solar energy to power 600 homes. This year, the company hopes to double solar capacity and its number of employees in Rhode Island.

“The Richmond project was a collaborative effort that demonstrates the educational, economic and environmental benefits of solar power,” said Nexamp CEO Zaid Ashai. “These projects, big and small, can have a significant positive impact on the community, and Nexamp is excited to be a part of many more across Rhode Island.”
