Upper Cape Cod Regional Technical High School (UCCT) is a public vocational-technical high school in Bourne, MA. UCCT has 725+ students across 13 areas of vocational courses. The school offers traditional programs in the areas of plumbing, electrical, carpentry, health, information technology, marine services, automotive technology, collision repair, and cosmetology.


As a technical school, UCCT had a range of factors boosting its energy expenses which it needed to bring under control. The institution wanted to install its solar project under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) to leverage its multifaceted benefits.


UCCT signed a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) with Solect and we turned the massive canopy project into reality. The 663 kW gigantic canopy shares a portion of its produced energy with the town’s Recreational Authority during the school’s relatively slow months through the summer.


The canopy is one of the state’s best and biggest. The enormous structure is visible from Bourne Bridge, the gateway to Cape Cod. Additionally, with the school’s focus on environmental sciences among a range of other scientific and technical areas, the solar carport complements its commitment to environmental well-being.
