Power Starts To Flow At RI's First Solar Electric Plant

September 1999 - Sun Power Electric, a Boston-based non-profit organization, has completed construction of its third solar facility to serve competitive green power markets in the Northeast. The newest facility, installed on the roof of a BJ's Wholesale Club in Middletown, Rhode Island, is a 43-kW system that will produce about 56,000 kilowatt-hours of electricity annually, enough to power 10 average-sized homes. Sun Power has an agreement to sell a portion of the system output to AllEnergy for its "ReGen" renewable power upgrade service. Sun Power has also installed PV systems at BJ's stores in Massachusetts and Pennsylvania.
