Our Massachusetts Solar Farms

In Massachusetts, we’ve built some of the nation’s largest Community Solar farms. Fun fact: Our Spencer, Massachusetts farm currently represents the largest Community Solar farm in the United States, spanning across 200 acres of the historic St. Joseph’s Abbey. St. Joseph’s Abbey is a community of Trappist monks, encouraged to be self-supportive by selling goods to the public, including a brewery project, Spencer Trappist Ale, and Trappist Preserves, a variety of jams and preserves! Take a look at this Community Solar farm and more.
