Expanding Utility Scale Systems for Ongoing Activities

Under the Massachusetts net metering program, the Massachusetts Military Reservation expects a seven- to eight-year return on a $4.6 million, 1.5-MW wind turbine that began operating onsite in December 2009. In 2010, MMR awarded construction contracts for two new 1.5-MW wind turbines to collectively offset 100% of the groundwater remediation electricity demand (from nine P&T systems) and began investigating production of additional electricity by way of a solar farm on the site's former landfill.
