BEDFORD, USA: Spire Corp., an American global solar company providing turn-key production lines to manufacture photovoltaic (PV) modules, and Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) integration services for solar systems, announced that it has begun the construction of a 2 megawatt (MW), eight-acre solar PV system at the Berkshire School in Sheffield, Massachusetts.
Spire is developing the system in collaboration with PowerPlay Solar, developer of the project, for the non-profit, private high-school. The Berkshire School’s mission is to become carbon neutral by 2016. Upon completion, the 2MW project will generate over 2,300 MW/hours per year of electricity, enough to power 40 percent of the school.
“We are excited to have begun construction of the solar field at the Berkshire School,” said Roger G. Little, chairman and CEO of Spire. “Our Solar Systems group continuously expands as we target large scale projects in the Northeast.”
