Joe's favorite project: "One of my favorite projects was the 2.2MW Easthampton Landfill project. This was one of the first large-scale solar arrays in MA, and it was the first solar array to be installed on a landfill in the Commonwealth. Designing a landfill racking system, navigating the post-closure use process with DEP as well as the interconnection process with the utility were all new experiences for me and my colleagues. This project proved that solar is low-impact and a great use for a capped landfill, and it will save Easthampton, the smallest City in MA, more than $1M over the first 10 years of operation."
