Check this out!! @dartmouthMa #2 community in MA for solar.Making a huge step towards #renewableenergy!! #southcoast

The installation is made up of more than 5,300 ground-mounted solar panels and is part of the Town’s overall commitment to sustainability. The Town of Dartmouth has seen a handful of additional in-progress solar projects within the past year (another 5 MW of which were installed by Borrego Solar) and now ranks second in solar energy production within the entire Commonwealth (only .01 megawatts behind Bsoton, the most solar community in MA). In addition, Dartmouth, in conjunction with the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth (UMASS Dartmouth), is the first municipality of its size to issue a Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Report—the results of which give the Town GOLD ranking. The Town is also in partnership with the Southeastern Environmental Education Alliance (SEEAL) to train UMASS Dartmouth students on energy efficiency and solar project development.
