This 12.3 megawatt solar system will provide electricity at a reduced rate for a period of 20 years to the privatized military family housing community at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, the U.S. military’s only tri-service installation, consisting of McGuire Air Force Base, Fort Dix and neighboring Naval Air Station Lakehurst. The project is expected to generate an estimated 13.7 million kilowatt-hours of renewable electric power annually, which represents approximately 40 percent of the annual electricity usage of the approximately 2,100 military family homes at the base. The project is one of the nation’s largest military community-based photovoltaic power plants.

This 1.9 megawatt solar farm in West Bridgewater, Mass., is among the largest projects in the state. Heliovaas, the project developer, will leverage Locus’ platform to monitor the seven-acre array, which will primarily power schools and municipal buildings. The solar farm is expected to provide the town with approximately $1.5 million in energy savings over the next 15 years.
Locus Energy recently completed work on a 3.4 megawatt ground-mounted system in southern Massachusetts. The project, which is owned and operated by Washington Gas Energy Systems, utilizes Locus Energy’s LGate 350 data acquisition system integrated with SCADA hardware. The performance data is collected for use by both the local utility and the project owner. The project provides power via long-term Power Purchase Agreements to the towns of Southbridge and Dudley.
