EDF Lancaster project powers up

EDF Renewable Energy says the 5.86MW Lancaster solar PV project 50 miles (80.4km) northwest of Boston has reached commercial operation.

EDF developed the project with Chicago-based Urban Green Technologies.

 The ground-mount fixed tilt PV project is located on privately-owned land at the former Shirley Airport. All power will be sold under long-term contract to the Town of Billerica.

EDF Renewable Services will provide long-term operations and maintenance for the facility, balance of plant, project oversight, and 24/7 remote monitoring from its operations control center. The center manages renewable projects across North America.
