Catalyzing Community Solar

Team Nexamp | Jul 20, 2016

Yesterday President Obama announced his Clean Energy Savings For All Initiative and its goal of bringing 1 gigawatt of solar to low- and moderate- income families by 2020. We here at Nexamp are proud to support this goal by committing to complete construction on 17 new community solar projects by the end of 2016, totalling 35 megawatts of projects that will serve nearly 2000 households, small businesses and non-profit organizations.

C-PACE comes to Rhode Island: An easier way to go Solar

Michael Cucchiara | Jul 19, 2016

Increasing your property’s value while supporting renewable energy has always been appealing, though not always economically compelling. Onsite solar projects can provide reliable and significant electricity cost savings. Especially in Rhode Island, where electricity rates are among the highest in the country, properties with solar installations can differentiate themselves - and even draw a premium - for progressive tenants drawn by industrial expansion and economic growth. Unfortunately, typical financing structures can limit the potential for these projects to become a reality for middle market commercial and industrial property owners.

However, a new option is quickly gaining popularity in the Ocean State: Commercial Property Assessed Clean Energy (C-PACE). C-PACE allows property owners to finance a solar project through voluntary charges on their property tax bill over the life the project. Following major successes in California and Connecticut, C-PACE legislation has been enacted in Rhode Island and 31 other states to help owners bring their properties into the new energy economy.

Encouraging Action at Solar Lobby Day

Edith Shi | Mar 31, 2016

One year after the net metering cap was hit, stalling hundreds of solar projects across the state, over a hundred solar employees from around the Commonwealth came together to urge legislative action to keep solar working in Massachusetts. The House and Senate have each proposed bills, but have yet to reach a consensus on several key issues, including the compensation rate for net metering and the size of the cap increase. The issue is currently being deliberated in a joint conference committee in an attempt to reconcile differences between the proposed bills.
