Citizens Solar generates revenues from successful energy ventures to fund charitable community programs. Founded in 2010, Citizens Solar develops, finances, constructs, owns, and operates the projects we undertake. To date, Citizens Solar completed the construction of a $50 million portfolio of nine distributed solar projects totaling over 18 megawatts on the East Coast.
Citizens Solar operates projects all across the United States. Contact email@example.com for more information.
Citizens Solar partners with a variety of organizations, ranging from public and private entities, individuals, investors and financiers, to construction and engineering contractors. A few ways to work with us are described below.
Landowners: Citizens Solar works with landowners to lease their property for a solar project. Citizens provides competitive prices and is responsible for all aspects of the project’s development and operations. Once operational, a solar lease with Citizens provides years of low-maintenance revenue from clean energy development. Please contact us if you are interested in developing your property for solar, or would like an evaluation of your land’s suitability for a solar project.
Power Buyers: If you don’t have suitable land, but are an industrial user with a large electricity bill, or a utility that procures wholesale electricity, Citizens can provide discounted power from one of our solar projects. Citizens partners are saving millions of dollars on their electricity costs through Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) or Net Metering Credit Sales Agreements.
Investors and Contractors: In addition to leasing land or purchasing solar power, Citizens Solar also works with tax equity partners, debt partners, and proven and reliable engineers and contractors.
If you would like to do business with us, or would like to inquire about a solar project, please contact us at 617-951-0413 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Capped in 1990, and operated as a golf driving range since the early 2000’s, the owners decided to go solar and the 1.8 MW project went operational in 2013. The Agawam Landfill Solar Project provides the Town of Agawam with a source of tax revenue, and sells Net Metering Credits to the Hood Milk factory nearby. In this case, green milk is a good thing!
Agawam Route 57
Zoned for commercial use, this parcel of land had laid vacant since it was cut off by the development of Route 57 in the mid-1990’s. Westmass Development recognized the opportunity to put the land to productive use and generate revenues by going solar. Citizens successful brought the project to commercial operation in early 2013.
The project site was previously utilized as a United States Army training site under the control of Fort Devens. When the post was closed in 1996, the land was slated for redevelopment into a 3.0 MW (DC) solar project. The power from this facility is sold to Devens Utilities, a local electric utility serving the town of Devens.
Residents and businesses of the town of Holyoke benefit from lower priced electricity rates and enjoy the small environmental footprint of a solar farm in their community.
Szawlowski Potato Farms, a family farm company established in 1910, has become a leader in clean energy in Western Massachusetts after opting to go solar on this ten acre parcel. This project shows how clean energy makes farming operations more profitable and sustainable which helps keep local farms in business. The Net Metering Credits are sold to the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office providing a valuable source of revenue for the town of Whatley.
