Power from up to four solar PV systems to go to Outer Cape nonprofit organization.
Outer Cape Energize announces that due to the overwhelming success of the “Solarize Mass” program, which ended on December 31, 2018, with signed contracts signed totaling 833kWs, Ace Solar will provide reduced-cost power from up to four solar photovoltaic systems to Outer Cape nonprofit organizations. Outer Cape Energize is now accepting preliminary applications for these systems from qualifying nonprofit organizations until midnight, Tuesday, February 5, 2019.
The system will be owned by the vendor, with the nonprofit providing the roof or ground space. The nonprofit will receive reduced cost electricity from the output of the system for the term of the contract of 20 years, either through a lease payment from ACE or a direct credit on electric bills.
Outer Cape Energize’s selection committee comprises representatives from Eastham, Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown. They will review all applications and select potential winners. Priority will be given to organizations that provide services to all four towns, own a building suitable for the PV installation, and expect to be able to benefit from such an installation for the expected useful life of 20 years. Applications are an expression of interest only and are not binding on either applicant or Outer Cape Energize, are subject to technical approval by Ace Solar and final approval by Outer Cape Energize’s selection committee and the selected nonprofits’ executive boards.
After the initial application is deemed complete, ACE will do a free initial assessment of the roofs. Then, for those that are good candidates for solar and that are selected by Outer Cape Energize, ACE will do a proposal to be reviewed and voted on by the nonprofit’s Board.
Preliminary Application Deadline: Feb 5, 2019
