Brockton Area Arc Installs Solar PV System

Brockton, MA – Brockton Area Arc, a non-profit servicing children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, has partnered with Solect Energy and PowerOptions to install a 76.8 kilowatt (kW) solar energy system on the roof of its facility. 

The array consists of 200 photovoltaic (PV) panels, which are projected to produce 86,000-kilowatt hours (kWh) of energy annually. The Brockton Area Arc anticipates the array will generate nearly 100 percent of its annual electricity, for a projected yearly savings of more than $15,000.

The Brockton Area Arc was able to install the solar array with no up-front costs through PowerOptions & Solect’s Solar Program. Under the program, Solect financed, installed, and will service the solar array on their roof, while The Arc receives the power generated at a fixed rate for a period of 20 years under a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) negotiated by PowerOptions.
