First Solar Electric Plant Built for Deregulated Market

December 1998 - The first solar-electric system built for the green power market began operating this week in N. Dartmouth, Massachusetts. The system is owned by Sun Power Electric of Boston, which bills itself as the first U.S. utility producing all of its power from solar energy and selling it in a competitive market. Sun Power is selling the power produced from Sun Power Station #1, which will have a total capacity of 50 kW, to AllEnergy for its green energy product, "Re-Gen." About one-third of the system, or 60 of the 156 photovoltaic (PV) panels, is currently in place. The system is being partially funded by the Utility PhotoVoltaic Group.
