Will 3

In August 2014, Brightfields Development, LLC was selected by the Town of Williamstown to codevelop a 2.0 megawatt (MW) solar field on the Town's closed landfill in western Massachusetts.

The Town began using the site located on Simonds Road as a landfill in 1973. Nearly 20 years later, landfill operations at the site were closed. With MassDEP oversight, the landfill was capped and received a closure certificate report in 1996. Given the environmentally sensitive site conditions, the development team has chosen to utilize a ballast-mounted racking system. The project consists of over 6,000 PV modules and covers approximately 7 acres of the landfill. 

Williamstown's production of clean electricity will:

  • Offset 1,772 tons of CO2 annually
  • Conserve 1,165,340 gallons of water annually
  • Provide the environmental benefits equivalent of planting 1,025,000 trees in its lifetime
