NRG Community Solar was born. In January 2015, we began reaching out to residents in Massachusetts about the benefits of community solar. But we didn’t stop there— in less than two years we have expanded into Minnesota and New York.
Not only did our message resonate with customers in that first year, but many began experiencing the benefits firsthand. By July 2015, our first solar farm in Freetown, Massachusetts was operational and generating credits for initial customers in the neighboring South Shore area.
One year after activating our first solar farm in Massachusetts, we energized a second one in Pepperell in July 2016. Three months later, another farm in Spencer was energized and immediately served notice as one of the largest community solar farms in the nation, now serving more than 1,500 customers.
In 2017, we began construction, completed and activated our first solar farm in Minnesota (Pine Island) and quickly added four more in the state. Growth also took hold in Massachusetts where we currently manage 10 active solar farms. Impressive growth for sure – and our story is only beginning!
