Discussion Sheds Light on Second Phase of EDIC Solar Array

Phase two of the Falmouth Economic Development and Industrial Corporation solar array is moving forward after a near-two-year delay.

Phase two will add an additional two megawatts to the landfill site off of Thomas B. Landers Road, half the capacity of phase one. Citizens Energy Corporation, a solar developer, completed the first phase of the landfill solar array in April 2017.

James E. Fox led the implementation of the first phase of the project while he was a member of the EDIC. He spoke before the current members of the EDIC on Tuesday, April 9, after he was contacted by Citizens Energy. "The good news is that phase two is coming together," he said.

Citizens Energy calculated phase two's total benefits for the town. The lease, payment-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILOT), and power purchase agreement will generate $87,966 in revenue in the first year. That number will slightly increase every year. To read more of this article click here.
