2.3 megawatt solar array covers 12 acres.
Wednesday, October 28, 2015,

In a Tuesday ceremony featuring Jiminy Peak CEO Tyler Fairbank and Nexamp CEO Zaid Ashai, Jiminy Peak's 2.3 megawatt solar farm went online. 50% of the Brodie Mountain Road facility's power is expected to be allocated to Jiminy Peak, while the balance will be sold to some 115 local subscribers.

The project was initiated by EOS Ventures, a sister entity of Jiminy Peak operating company Fairbank Group. Northeast based Nexamp built and will operate the $6 million, 12 acre solar farm.

It is not known how much public money will be used to construct or operate the solar array, but Hancock voters approved a Payment In Lieu Of Taxes arrangement involving electricity credits.

Jiminy Peak previously installed a $3.9 million, 4.6 megawatt wind turbine in 2007.

Nearby Berkshire East installed a 500 kilowatt solar farm in 2012, while Mt. Abram in Maine added a 245 kilowatt array in 2014.
