Alternative energy development and investment expertise to meet the complex demands of solar energy projects in Massachusetts
Cape Cod Renewable Energy Initiatives
Salt Works Energy has developed $150 million in solar assets over the past ten years, including some of the largest solar farms in Massachusetts. Salt Works Energy’s principals afford the knowledge and incentive necessary to efficiently steer green energy projects from conception to commercial operation. The new climate change legislation provides a 30% federal tax credit for owners of solar and battery storage projects.
Commercial Solar Power Installations (200-2000kw)
The sun’s rays supply vast solar energy, which in turn, can be converted into electricity or heat. Solar energy is free and does not contribute to the production of additional global greenhouse emissions, acid rain, or smog. The cost of solar energy technology has decreased significantly as the technology and market mature globally and within Massachusetts. Projects range between 200 and 2000 kilowatts at a range of commercial facilities including real estate, retail, healthcare, lodging and parking facilities.
Mid-Cape Athletic Club (Yarmouth, MA)
Mid-Cape Athletic Club is a 250 kW solar roof array that was completed in 2020. The project served as part of the Club’s overall expansion project, as well as it was an important component to the Club’s commitment to helping the environment.
Danvers Indoor Sports (DIS)
Salt Works Energy developed the 1300kw rooftop project for Danvers Indoor Sports with IRC Solar. The power is being sold under a long term agreement to the Danvers Municipal Light Department.
Danversport Yacht Club (DYC)
Salt Works Energy collaborated with the DYC on a solar canopy project serving the internal electricity requirements of the facility. In operation since the spring of 2014, DYC now generates the equivalent of 275,000 kilowatt hours of clean power a year – or about half of the club’s power needs; provides covered parking for 40 customer spaces and a place to recharge electric cars; and allows the DYC to earn revenue from solar green-energy credits.
When the dealer, a prominent name in the boating community in Boston and on the North Shore, relocated their marquee location from Medford to Danvers, they reached out to Salt Works Energy to install solar roof panels and embrace green energy and efficiency in their new location.
Four City Solar Farm
Salt Works Energy recently led the development of 10 megawatts of large scale solar farms in four Massachusetts communities with a capital investment of $40 million. Previous power development experience includes the installation of 1500 mw of large gas turbine projects in the state.
