These projects, developed by BlueWave and owned by Amp, will produce local, clean energy and generate long term electricity savings for residents, small businesses and public entities around eastern Massachusetts.

The Dover project, located on the Town of Dover’s capped landfill on property owned by the Hale Reservation, is a 1.4 MW (DC) community solar project providing electricity bill credits to nearly eighty subscribers comprising of local residents, small businesses, and the Dover Sherborn Regional School District.  In addition, the site is being used as an educational tool for visitors to the Hale Reservation Recreation Center through an on-site interactive kiosk.  Informational displays will also be located at the Dover Sherborn Middle School and at the solar site for public viewing.
