Temple Beth Elohim Wellesley Partners with Solect Energy & PowerOptions to Bring Solar to Synagogue

May 23 – Wellesley, MA –  Temple Beth Elohim, a Wellesley-based Reform congregation, has joined with Solect Energy of Hopkinton, MA and PowerOptions of Boston, to install a 37 kilowatt (kW) solar energy system on the roof of its synagogue. The solar array is a significant addition to the congregation’s efforts toward sustainability.

“Our Temple Beth Elohim community has, for a very long time, considered the importance of sustainability and environmental protection.  Preserving our resources and being stewards and protectors of our earth are values that we find in our ancient Jewish texts,” said Rabbi Rachel Saphire. “Installing solar panels at the temple is an actualization of our values, a way to model sustainability for our congregants, and a concrete effort to reduce our carbon footprint.  We are proud to fulfill this sacred obligation and perform such an important mitzvah (commandment) of our tradition.”

As a nonprofit that is unable to benefit from renewable energy federal and state tax incentives, the Temple faced a number of options for financing and installing the solar array.  After comparing rooftop solar opportunities from different vendors, a team of congregants, staff, and clergy at Temple Beth Elohim selected Solect’s small systems solar program with PowerOptions. Under the program, Solect installs, owns, and operates the solar arrays on the Temple’s roof, and sells the power generated under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) at a fixed rate for a period of 20 years.

However, completing the transaction was not as straightforward as in many other towns. Solar generation works differently under municipal utilities than it does in an investor-owned territory with utilities like Eversource and National Grid. Wellesley is one of 41 towns in Massachusetts that purchase power from the electric utility owned by the municipality, in this case, the Wellesley Municipal Light Plant (“WMLP”). Massachusetts laws require the utility to be the reseller of power to its customers within the town boundaries. Making the array a reality required a PPA with the WMLP. Under the agreement, the power generated from the array is purchased by the WMLP, who then sells it to the Temple. “Creating the contractual arrangement with the municipal electric utility requires an understanding of Massachusetts laws and maintaining a focus on value for the customer,” said Kevin Sullivan, Assistant Superintendent for the WMLP.

“We took a great deal of pride in completing this project for Temple Beth Elohim,” said Alex Keally, SVP of Business Operations at Solect. “It required hard work and collaboration from a number of different parties to develop this innovative solution, and I’m thrilled we made it work for the congregation.” Sullivan added; “We worked to streamline the interconnection process with Solect and the PPA proved instrumental for the Temple. Bringing Temple Beth Elohim’s array on line brought the WMLP total connected solar generation to 700 kilowatts in the Town of Wellesley. We are proud to be a part of power generation from renewable alternatives.”

“PowerOptions applauds the WMLP for its willingness to facilitate this project and Temple Beth Elohim for their commitment,” said PowerOptions CEO Cynthia A. Arcate. “Like so many other nonprofit and government institutions, the Temple saw the value of our program which has helped mission-driven organizations from across the state tap into the benefits of solar power.”

MCHS-3

April, 6 – Malden, MA. — Malden Catholic High School, an all-boys college preparatory school founded in 1932 and sponsored by the Xaverian Brothers, has partnered with Solect Energy of Hopkinton, MA to install a 476 kilowatt (kW) solar energy system on the roof of its Malden campus. The solar array is expected to cover a significant portion of the school’s annual electricity use, and stabilize their costs to protect against future rate hikes.

In addition to providing a challenging curriculum, championship-caliber athletics, and a variety of activities, Malden Catholic High School consistently espouses the values instilled in their student body throughout the organization’s decision-making process.

“We feel an obligation to our families, our donors, and our community to act responsibly,” explained Thomas Doherty, Malden Catholic Headmaster. “Installing solar has both environmental and financial benefits.”

Malden Catholic High School entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (“PPA”) with Solect to build the array. Under the program, Solect owns and operates the solar array, and sells the power generated back to the organization at a reduced, fixed rate for a period of 20 years. The agreement not only stabilizes the school’s energy costs, but provides the energy at a lower rate through an environmentally responsible source.

“Solar is environmentally effective, enabling us to be a good steward of natural resources and reduce Malden Catholic’s carbon footprint.  Solar is also cost-effective, enabling us to be a good steward of the financial resources we receive through tuition payments and through donations to the school,” Doherty continued.  “From every angle, it’s the right thing to do.”

“It was a pleasure partnering with Malden Catholic High School on a PPA program to bring affordable clean energy to the school, ” said Craig Huntley Partner at Solect, “They provide an outstanding service to the youth enrolled there, and we are thrilled to play a part in contributing to their success.”

In addition to their solar installation, Malden Catholic is dedicated to a thorough recycling program and has recently converted to more energy efficient lighting to ensure a more efficient campus. Additionally, they have converted from print to digital marketing to support the school’s initiatives while minimizing their environmental impact. The school has made strides in advancing environmental awareness and responsibility and felt solar from Solect is the next logical step.

Fitchburg Public Schools and Solect Energy Partner to Install Rooftop Solar Arrays

FPS-3

 

Fitchburg, MA – April 5, 2017 – Fitchburg Public Schools recently partnered with Solect Energy, the Commonwealth’s leading installer of commercial-scale solar energy systems, to install two rooftop solar systems totaling 603 kilowatts (kW) on Fitchburg’s Reingold Elementary School and Memorial Middle School. The installations will provide clean renewable energy to the schools while enabling them to save on energy costs.

Fitchburg Public Schools is dedicated to providing learning experiences which engage students in achieving high academic standards, preparing them for the challenges of living in today’s world. The district’s Reingold Elementary School educates 677 students in pre-kindergarten to grade four. The recent installation continues the school department‘s goal of utilizing clean energy; after replacing its roof in 2011, the elementary school became a viable candidate for solar.

“The best part of working with Solect is that not only did they install the panels, but they have been supportive in our efforts to leverage the installation as a learning opportunity for our students,” said Jessica Stodulski, district STEM support specialist at Fitchburg Public Schools. “Solect has played an active role by sending guest speakers to our school, capturing drone video footage so students can get a glimpse of how the panels are arranged on the roof, and providing access to the monitoring dashboard to allow the installation to be an authentic, integrated part of our STEM program.”

With the array installed, the Reingold Elementary School’s energy costs have been reduced by more than $40,000 per year.

“Making the switch to solar at two of the district’s schools is a big win for not only the schools, but the City of Fitchburg in terms of the environmental benefits,” said Matt Shortsleeve, vice president of development at Solect Energy. “It also creates significant cost savings that can now be applied back to the school’s educational programs, all while supporting the City’s initiatives as a green community.”

The solar arrays at Reingold Elementary and Memorial Middle School were financed and constructed through a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Solect, facilitated through the PowerOptions Solar Program. Under the agreement, Solect owns and operates the solar arrays, and sells the power generated back to the school at a reduced, fixed rate for the duration of the 20-year agreement. As a member of PowerOptions since 2004, Fitchburg Public Schools was able to participate in the PowerOptions Solar Program, in lieu of conducting their own RFP.  This program offers favorable pricing and beneficial terms for solar PPAs through Solect, and dozens of public entities and non-profits in Massachusetts are taking advantage of this program to reduce their energy expenses.

“At PowerOptions, we support the public entities and nonprofits that are serving our communities in part by making solar energy more accessible with offerings like our Solar Program,” said PowerOptions executive vice-president Meg Lusardi. “In addition to cost predictability and savings, the City of Fitchburg implemented its solar project without the need for any upfront costs or ongoing maintenance responsibilities.”

In addition, Andre Ravenelle, Fitchburg school superintendent, commented, “This initiative has been a wonderful collaborative effort.  The work of my staff and Solect has provided a valuable contemporary energy solution, increased awareness of solar power in our schools and the community and reduced our utility expenses, which allows for funding to be redirected to the important work of educating Fitchburg students.”

The Fitchburg school district is considering solar installations on additional properties as a result of the success of those at the elementary and middle schools.

“We are pleased with the results we have seen since the installation, and it would not have been made possible without the exceptional work done by Solect,” said Robert Jokela, assistant superintendent of finance & operations at Fitchburg Public Schools. “The savings generated by the solar panels will allow the school department to reallocate the funds to education related efforts.”

Following the announcement, the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center sponsored Clean Energy Activity Day at Reingold Elementary School on Wednesday, which provides a hands-on experience for students at six public schools across Massachusetts.

“This Solect solar project is the perfect backdrop for today’s Clean Energy Activity Day as we partner with Fitchburg Public Schools to provide an engaging learning environment for more than 100 students,” said MassCEC CEO Stephen Pike. “We hope this project and these learning activities inspire a new generation of clean energy stewards to take on Massachusetts’ climate and energy opportunities.”

MILFORD, MA – March 15, 2017 – Countryside Health Care of Milford, a non-profit, municipal, skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility serving the greater Milford community, has partnered with Solect Energy, the state’s leading installer of commercial-scale solar energy systems based in Hopkinton, MA, to construct a 261 kilowatt (kW) rooftop solar array on the rehabilitation facility. The new system will provide clean energy to Countryside Health Care while also decreasing the town of Milford’s carbon footprint, as Countryside is the first municipal entity in town to go solar.

 

Countryside Health Care and Solect entered into a Power Purchase Agreement (“PPA”) under which Solect owns and operates the solar array, and sells the power generated back to the organization at a reduced, fixed rate for a period of 20 years.

 

“Installing 817 solar panels on Countryside Health Care is a significant step towards reducing our carbon footprint and emissions in the municipality,” said Bill Buckley, Chairman of the Milford Board of Selectmen. “The agreement and innovation will have a game-changing impact as its the first municipal building in our community to go solar.  It’s my hope that more municipal departments adopt solar as a way to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels while at the same time saving the taxpayers significant dollars.”

 

“It’s a pleasure working with a nonprofit like Countryside Health Care which does so much for the residents of Milford and its surrounding communities,” said Steve Bianchi, Partner and Senior Vice President  at Solect Energy. “The array serves as a good example of deploying a clean energy solution at the municipal level and will hopefully inspire others to go green as well.”

Solect Energy Acquires Northeast Division of Brightergy

Hopkinton, MA – March 7, 2017 – Solect Energy, the state’s leading commercial developer and installer of solar energy systems, today announced that the company has acquired a division of Brightergy, a solar and energy services provider based in Kansas City, with operations in Boston. Solect acquired Brightergy’s Northeast sales and project management operations in addition to some of Brightergy’s intellectual property developed around commercial solar lead generation.

With more than 1,500 completed commercial solar projects, Brightergy is one of the most experienced commercial solar companies in the United States. The sale of the Northeast division is part of a broader plan to narrow Brightergy’s focus on serving electric utility clients nationwide and commercial clients in the Midwest.

”We were very impressed with Solect’s company culture and the similarities to ours. Once we decided to sell our Northeast division, it was a no-brainer to partner with Solect,” said Adam Blake, Brightergy’s CEO.

“The acquisition supports Solect’s growth and transformation from the leading Massachusetts Commercial Solar Company to New England’s leading clean energy services company,” said Driscoll.

Earlier this month, Solect announced achieving a record-breaking year in 2016, completing 115 sites and installing more than 26 megawatts (MW) in total solar output.  Additionally, 2016 saw the official launch of the company’s Solar Services division, as well as expansion into the neighboring states of Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Since the company’s inception in 2009, Solect Energy has grown from a three-person operation to having a core staff of 60 people in 2016. With the acquisition of Brightergy’s Northeast division, Solect has added 15 new employees bringing Solect’s total roster to 75.

DCIM100MEDIADJI_0198.JPG

GLOUCESTER, MA – March  2, 2017 – The McNiff Company, a commercial real estate owner and developer, has partnered with Solect Energy, the state’s leading commercial installer of solar energy systems, to install a 111.5 kilowatt (kW) solar system on the roof of its Cape Ann Forge office building.  The installation will help the company to reach its goal of saving on energy costs in order to grow the business and create lower lease rates for its tenants.

The McNiff Company is a property ownership group headquartered in Gloucester, MA run by Jay McNiff. With the incentives generated from the solar array, The McNiff Company will be able to reduce energy costs for its tenants, including the Cape Ann Beer Company. Jay saw the advantages of going solar firsthand after being involved in a smaller solar project at Glen Urquhart, his son’s school in Beverly, MA.

“It has been a pleasure working with Solect Energy on our solar installation. After taking into consideration the needs of our tenants—in knowing firsthand Solect’s record of accomplishment—we felt it was time to make the switch,” said McNiff. “Moreover, a number of commercial tenants expressed interest in purchasing solar energy.  We have to meet the needs of our clients, and this particular install will help to do that.”

Cape Ann Brewing Co. a client of The McNiff Company will be an off-taker of a significant portion of the energy produced by the array, with it covering 100% of their energy needs.   “Cape Ann Brewing Company is excited about the opportunity to participate in the program offered through the McNiff Company and their investment in solar energy power. We believe in the need to utilize renewable energy and are committed to supporting this project.”

Throughout its history, the property development group has sought to practice sustainability by utilizing Massachusetts’ Brownfield program, which provides grants and technical assistance to communities, states and others to assess, clean up and reuse properties that may have previous environmental impacts present—also known as “Brownfield” properties. Their investment in the solar array continues that commitment, avoiding approximately 200,000 pounds of CO2 output every year.

“We are  pleased to work with The McNiff Company on its first solar installation,” said Alex Keally, Partner at Solect. “Both The McNiff Company and its tenants like Cape Ann Beer Co., NeedyMeds and others, will procure the benefits of the system, creating a win-win for all  parties in terms of cost savings and the positive environmental impact.”

“By utilizing the solar program under SREC 2, we’ve realized that sustainable energy sources can be good for the environment, good for business partners—in this case, our tenants—and finally, good for our bottom line,” added McNiff.

SOLECT 7

 

The full-service solar installer has now completed 330 projects for businesses throughout New England that help control energy costs and benefit the environment

Hopkinton, MA – February 7, 2017 – Solect Energy, the state’s leading commercial developer and installer of solar energy systems, today announced that the company achieved a record-breaking year in 2016, completing 115 sites and installing more than 26 megawatts (MW) in total solar output. In 2015, the company celebrated hitting its 20th MW of installations over five years of service, and in 2016 it surpassed that milestone installing 26.3 MW in a single year.

Solect’s 57 MW of commercial-scale solar installations makes it the Bay State’s leading commercial-scale solar provider.

“Matching and then exceeding our previous five year 20 megawatt milestone in just one year is very exciting for us,” said Ken Driscoll, Founder and CEO of Solect. “This is yet another exciting achievement, not only for Solect, but also for the hundreds of commercial businesses, schools and municipalities that are benefiting from solar energy and helping to shape Massachusetts’ future in renewable energy.”

This year, Solect also launched its Solar Service program, which offers a comprehensive suite of operations & maintenance (O&M) and warranty services including scheduled and preventative maintenance, production monitoring and reporting, net metering support, and SREC management.  The company currently maintains over 67 MW of commercial-scale installations in New England through its services division.

Since the company’s inception in 2009, Solect Energy has grown from a three-person operation to having a core staff of 60 people today, while providing jobs for another 200 plus installers and contractors throughout Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

The company’s market growth and expansion is significant given regulatory issues that have frequently injected uncertainty into the market, often stalling or slowing down key projects.

In addition, Solect’s success in the Massachusetts market enabled the company to expand into the neighboring states of Rhode Island and Connecticut offering commercial, industrial, institutional and municipal customers smart solar and energy management solutions. The company’s venture into new solar markets demonstrates Solect’s increasing momentum in the region.

“Solect has delivered significant cost savings and stability to hundreds of businesses and organizations in the Commonwealth, and we’re eager to provide our expertise in the commercial solar market for clients in Rhode Island and Connecticut moving forward,” added Driscoll.

In 2016, Solect Energy was named to an annual and well-recognized list of North America’s top solar contractors, achieving an overall national rank of 92 out of 500 solar companies and ranking #1 on the list for commercial-scale engineering, procurement & construction solar companies in Massachusetts.
