Nautilus Solar, TurningPoint Energy join forces on four community solar projects in Maine
Nautilus Solar Energy and TurningPoint Energy announced a partnership for four community solar projects in Maine totaling 25.5 MWDC of solar capacity. Located in Somerset, Kennebec, Androscoggin and Knox counties, the projects were in late stage of development and construction began in the second quarter of 2021. Once completed, the community solar projects will provide a clean energy option to 5,750 households across the country. Maine in downtown Maine. Power supply area.
These projects were developed by TurningPoint Energy as part of Maine’s Net Energy Billing program, which was amended by Governor Mills in June 2019 to provide renewable energy, energy efficiency and lower cost benefits to its residential customers. Nautilus is the long-term owner of the projects and responsible for overseeing construction, maintaining long-term performance, and acquiring and managing customer subscriptions. Any residential customer of Central Maine Power Utility is eligible to participate in one of the projects through Nautilus with no upfront costs, no long-term commitment, and no cancellation fees.
“These projects symbolize Nautilus’ commitment to making clean energy simple and accessible to all Mainers,” said Jim Rice, co-CEO of Nautilus Solar.
