Needham Selects Brightfields for Solar Project

Boston Globe

On November 4th, 2013, the Town of Needham passed six warrant articles to enable the construction and operation of a solar project at the closed and capped landfill off of Central Avenue. The articles established a new zoning overlay district allowing solar photovoltaics and authorized a 20-year lease agreement with the project's developer.

In October, Needham selected Brightfields Development as the winning bidder through a competitive RFP process that drew 11 interested companies. Once the final lease agreement is executed, the project could be up and running as early as Q4 2014.

Gates Intermediate School seventh graders embarked on a day-long field trip today to tour Scituate's public facilities. Math teacher Adam Culbert organized the trip after regularly driving past the windmill and solar array.

Nigel Carr of Brightfields Development led a presentation to the Gates middle Schoolers in Thursday morning, discussing the general topic of energy, how it is produced and used, and what the solar and wind projects mean to the Town. "We're the first town completely powered by wind and solar energy, and it's something to be proud of," Culbert said.

Today, the long awaited Scituate landfill solar project officially finished construction and began delivering electricity to the local grid.

Deadlines had to be pushed back but the project will now supply half of the Town's electricity needs. "Financing these projects is very difficult, but Brightfields and their energy partners have come through," said Al Bangert, Scituate's Director of Public Works.

Today marks the last of a week long testing period for the Scituate solar project on the town's capped landfill. The array finished construction earlier in September and has undergone performance verifications since. The trial testing that ended today is the final step before the project officially comes on line.

Scituate town officials confirmed today that the solar project developed by Brightfields atop the closed landfill on Driftway avenue is nearly complete. The project is on schedule for commercial operation on or before November 1, 2013.

When the project is complete, Brightfields will introduce the solar energy curriculum they have been developing in conjunction wit the Scituate school system. As part of the education effort, Brightfields will host guided site tours with Scituate students later this fall.
