Pine gets confirms funding for their Agrovoltaic projects in Massachusetts

Feed Solar

Pine Gate Renewables, a fully integrated utility-scale solar development company, has closed financing on two new dual-use solar projects that will bring 9 MW of solar energy and storage to the community of Carver, Mass., while also maintaining the ground for cranberry farming.

Most solar projects are built using steel racking, but to create enough space for the cranberry bogs below, Pine Gate’s EPC team will engineer the Solar Carver projects to be built on 25-40 ft long wooden utility poles – which are more durable for the wet terrain.

The projects will be a part of the Solar Massachusetts Renewable Target program, a statewide solar incentive program with the intent to procure 3,200 MW of new solar projects.
