Partnership with Kearsarge Energy will deliver over 1 MW of energy back to the town
Watertown, MA – May 20, 2020 – Boylston Properties today announced the completion of an extensive solar panel energy project at Arsenal Yards, a 1M square foot mixed-use project in Watertown’s East End neighborhood. After an extensive search for the best-in-class partner, Boylston Properties partnered with Kearsarge Energy on the six-month project. The energy company undertook a multi-million-dollar investment and is the owner and operator of the solar panels. Through the partnership, approximately 2,700 solar panels have been installed as a canopy on top of the brand-new parking garage, as well as on one of the two original Arsenal building roofs on the property – making this the largest solar energy project in the town to-date.
The solar panels will generate 1,375,000 kWhours that will be sold by Kearsarge Energy as discounted energy credits to low- and moderate-income housing facilities in the surrounding community including Boston. The energy generated is enough to supply power to 212 homes annually. Boylston Properties is continuing to explore further opportunities to efficiently and effectively install new arrays on additional aspects of the property.
