Welcome to the Central Maine Power community solar farm update blog. With your membership, you’re saying yes to renewable energy in your neighborhood. Our developers (Novel Energy Solutions) are in the process of constructing multiple gardens at once. Memberships like yours help us grow and bring more savings and support of clean, local energy to your neighborhood.
The three main steps to building a community solar farm:
- Construction started
- Solar panels installed
- Power grid connected
All of these steps need to take place before savings can begin.
Communities Served by Join Solar
Solar energy produced by Join Solar’s farms will provide clean energy to the following communities within Central Maine Power District area which includes:
- Central Maine Power (CMP), a subsidiary of AVANGRID, serves approximately 646,000 electricity customers in an 11,000-square-mile service area in central and southern Maine.
A lot is happening in the Central Maine Power service area. Front Street Community Solar Garden is almost complete. The construction crew has been working diligently this month to complete the electrical. Once testing is finished with the utility, members will start receiving savings. 83 Airport Road Community Solar Garden has been energized by CMP, and the members are now receiving credits. At the L’Heureux Community Solar Garden site, the team is working to clear the area and prep it for civil work to begin once the weather warms up.
Sanford Community Solar Garden has been energized by CMP and the members are now receiving credits. These members are going to begin to see their savings add up while supporting local energy which is everyone at Join Solar’s goal. Additionally, racking and module installation at Sokokis Community Solar Garden.
