ENGIE and Clean Energy Collective (CEC), a community solar solutions provider, announced that they have joined forces on a community solar portfolio consisting of 16 solar facilities located throughout Massachusetts.
"The strategic move combines ENGIE's position as a leading provider of retail energy services and supply with CEC's proven community solar development and program management process to broaden access to solar throughout the Commonwealth of Massachusetts," the companies said
"The alliance leverages CEC's expertise in developing and operating community solar projects and ENGIE's vast reach providing retail energy services to immediately open the benefits of community solar to a large base of residential, commercial and municipal energy users across Massachusetts," the companies said
"CEC led the development of the projects, while the two collaborators will jointly own and operate the 16 community solar projects currently constructed and interconnected in Eversource and National Grid territories, delivering more than 22.1 megawatts of locally-generated clean energy," the companies said
"Combined with previous projects, CEC continues to be the largest developer of community solar within Massachusetts, bringing long-term project management and customer expertise to the portfolio. A large percentage of the projects is already directly benefitting ENGIE's Massachusetts customers through its residential retail brand, Think Energy, and its commercial, industrial and municipal energy supplier, ENGIE Resources," the companies said
