A 7-MW community solar project in Belfast, Maine is now operational and providing clean energy to the
utility grid. PowerMarket and SunRaise will together provide Mainers a number of options to support clean energy in the state. With this community solar project in Belfast, CMP customers can take part in renewable energy while receiving 10% savings on the community solar credits they receive from their participation.
“We are thrilled that this community solar project has gone online and is now providing the grid with
clean energy. Being from New England, our goal in Maine has been simple – provide more New
Englanders access to clean energy. Community solar is a way to provide people from all walks of life –
homeowners, renters, business owners, and more – access to renewable energy. Through community
solar projects like this one in Belfast, we have been able to accomplish that goal and we are proud to
see our work come to life and benefit Mainers.” – Patrick Jackson, Co-Founder of SunRaise Investments.
PowerMarket has worked alongside SunRaise to subscribe this project. With an office in Monson,
Maine, PowerMarket employees have been speaking to Mainers about the benefits of community solar
throughout the year. Now, these benefits are finally being seen by subscribers.
“It is great to see this project come online because for so long we have been talking about the benefits
of community solar as hypotheticals. Now that this project is producing clean energy for the grid, the
benefits of community solar are real and subscribers will soon be able to see these benefits
themselves.” – Nick Baudouin, Co-Founder of PowerMarket
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
