Distributed Solar Development (DSD), in partnership with the Cape and Vineyard Electric Cooperative (CVEC), has completed the installation of two carport solar canopies, totaling 1.763 MW, and a 892-kWh energy storage system at the Brewster’s Captains Golf Course and Driving Range on Cape Cod, Massachusetts.
“It’s wonderful to see a project of this size and importance to Brewster residents be completed on time and on budget,” said Maria Marasco, Esq., CVEC’s Executive Director. “Brewster is one of CVEC’s 25 municipal members across the Cape, Island and South Coast which asked CVEC to oversee project development.”
“These projects build on the success of Massachusetts’ efforts to expand its solar capacity,” says Tim Magner, Senior Director of Project Origination at DSD. “Our collaboration with CVEC and local municipalities truly demonstrates the power solar has to reduce energy costs for residents and businesses across the region. We are looking forward to making the rest of the portfolio operational and sharing the benefits of clean, renewable energy with many more across Cape Cod.”
Two other sites in the portfolio are also operational. The Sandwich Police Department installation includes two carport solar canopies, totaling 201.69 kW, extending over the station parking lot. The second site is a 239.49-kW rooftop solar system at Monomoy High School, installed in cooperation with the Town of Harwich.
The 12 remaining projects in the portfolio, eight of which include energy storage systems, are in the development and construction phases. The projects are located at eight different schools, a golf course, and a landfill. Six are carport installations, four are rooftop, and two are ground-mounted.
