SunLight General Capital’s 6.2 MW groundmount project in Foster, Rhode Island has obtained final authorization from National Grid and has started generating revenue to our investors. This project is set in two seperated tranches: one Tranche entered into the Feed-in-Tariff with Rhode Island’s RE-Growth program, and another participating in the Community Remote Net Metering pilot program, which will offer 10% bill credit savings to local Rhode Islander subscribers, and is using Arcadia Power to on-board and manage subscribers. SunLight has used local development efforts and labor for the civil and installation of this project, including Providence-based Newport Renewables for the electrical work.
“Our team has worked for three years to make this project happen, and has gone above and beyond the state and local requirements to comply with environmental rules and to ensure that the community would benefit from this clean energy through the community solar program”, said James Pochez, director of Development at SunLight General. “SunLight’s commitment to participate in Rhode Island’s energy transition by partnering with local workforce has been demonstrated here and hopefully in many more Rhode Island projects to come”.
