Milliston Commons is a popular retail plaza in Millis, MA, housing a large number of retail businesses, including a laundromat, a grocery store, and other small enterprises.


Milliston Commons uses substantial electricity to light, cool, heat, and power the common areas, including the parking lot and more. As a result, their energy expenditure was massive and required to be addressed.


Milliston Commons partnered with Solect Energy to install solar projects on four of the plaza’s roofs to curb the increasing energy expenses.


A significant reduction in electricity costs

The 653 kW system covers 100% of the plaza’s energy demand for the common areas and additional spaces and facilities, besides generating significant savings—as much as $130,000—and helping the client earn eligible federal and state incentives and a continued income from the sale of SRECs.
