The development of the North Adams solar project was a collaborative effort involving Syncarpha Capital, local government officials, and Borrego Solar. The project featured a 3.5 MW solar array alongside two additional 650 kW systems, covering 14 acres of the city’s capped landfill. Syncarpha Capital entered into a 20-year agreement with the city, providing power at a low, set cost, which was a significant factor in the project’s viability and sustainability. The leasing arrangement with Borrego Solar, which involves a $12,000 annual payment for the land, was crucial for the financial structuring of the project. The development also benefited from Massachusetts’ supportive solar policies, including net metering, which allows for electricity generated by solar arrays to be sold back to the grid.
