Location: Berlin, Massachusetts

System Size: 6.56 kW

Date: 2009

A 6,560-watt solar electric system situated on a horse barn covers between a third and virtually all of this farm’s electricity needs in any given month. In the first four years since turning their system on, solar made them almost 32,000 kilowatt-hours of clean energy — 2,000 watts above projections. This offsets 22.6 metric tons of CO2, and is like taking 4.7 cars off the road.

How is the system performing today? The customer says this on the Solar Reviews website in November 2016: “Our installation has worked flawlessly since it was installed in 2009. When we wanted to add emergency power, NE Clean Energy helped us set it up and did the necessary work.”
