Greenskies is your vertically-integrated, solar partner, dedicated to quality and operational excellence. Unlike other developers, we plan to own and operate for the long-term.
The Town Council on Monday unanimously approved agreements with Greenskies Clear Energy to install solar panels on Wapping, Philip R. Smith, and Orchard Hill elementary schools and, depending on the bid, at the high school and Eli Terry Elementary School as well.
Greenskies, a solar energy developer based in Middletown, is building a 1.3 MW DC solar project at the old landfill. The solar farm, which will be comprised of about 4,000 solar panels on a 20-acre capped landfill site, will generate just under 1 megawatt of power per year.
The Board of Education last week unanimously approved a plan to add solar panel arrays to the roofs of Philip R. Smith, Orchard Hill, and Wapping elementary school buildings.
Revenue from the Lewis County solar array has covered about 59% of the county’s electricity bill over the past 15 months, and this is just the beginning.
Today, the Town of Simsbury, in cooperation with Asante Energy and Greenskies Renewable Energy, announced the successful completion of a 220kW rooftop solar array located at the Town’s recreation facility on Old Farms Road.
"This is another step forward in the Commonwealth’s clean-energy mission, and will help make Massachusetts a better place for the next generation."
"It’s a great project using energy and lowering emissions and it makes use of the landfill, which is otherwise unused."
"We're taking a major energy-consuming asset and we're going to be powering it with renewable energy. We’re eliminating the electricity costs of that facility for the taxpayers."
"We are thrilled with the installation... Our outstanding partners, Clean Focus [now Greenskies] and American Capital Energy, have demonstrated significant expertise and skill in deploying these valuable solar assets."
"It was a pleasure to work with Clean Focus [now Greenskies] and partners on this project. We’re proud to have flexed our extensive construction expertise to build this magnificent 3.75 MW project."
"Incorporating solar into our overall plan was just the right thing to do for environmental and financial reasons. Bundling these projects allowed us to accomplish more in a shorter period of time."
