BELD Community Solar
Braintree Community Solar at the old landfill
The array is made up of 4,142 solar panels and will have the capacity to produce 1.26 megawatts of
electricity. Over the course of a year it is expected to generate 1,645,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity—enough power to more than 200 homes.
BELD customers may lease up to 10 panels. Each month, we’ll meter the output of the full array. The total will vary depending on how much sunlight was available during the billing period. Customers choosing to take part in the program will receive a percentage of the generation, based on the production associated with their leased panels.
Now as much as 75% of your average yearly usage can come from power generated by the sun. Joining BELD Community Solar is by far the easiest way to harness green energy in Braintree. Even if you can’t (or don’t want to) put panels on your roof, you can still benefit from many advantages of solar power.
