Falmouth Makes Plans for Next Solar Project

FALMOUTH – After last year’s installation of a 4.3 megawatt solar farm off of Thomas B Landers Road in Falmouth, officials have now started phase two of an expansion to the former landfill sight.

“We opened up the solar land fill about 15 months ago. In those 15 months, it has generated 6,497,355 kilowatt hours of power, which has saved the town approximately $60,000 in energy costs, so it has been preforming very well,” said Michael Galasso, Falmouth Economic Development and Industrial Corporation board member.

The new project will create an additional two-megawatt station located at the sight, thus bringing more energy efficiency to the area.

The only hold up to the plan includes the completion of inner-connection work, and budgetary program layout clarification.

According to Emma Kosciak, Director of Solar Development for Citizens Energy, “other than those two temporary roadblocks, the project is fully permitted and ready to go.”

No word yet on when the official opening of the plant will take place.
