The following is an announcement from J.M. Electrical Company:
J.M. Electrical Company, Inc., premier professionals in advanced automated building system installations, announced today that they have partnered to install a privately financed, 495 kW ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) system adjacent to Hoosac Valley Middle/High School in Cheshire, MA, part of the Adams-Cheshire Regional School District.
The Lynnfield-based systems specialists will install the racking, panels, and metering for the PV system that sits across from the school that serves over 700 students from the communities of Cheshire, Adams, and Savoy.
Located in western Massachusetts’ Berkshire County, J.M. Electrical will have fourteen systems specialists on-site during two months of peak construction that began in the beginning of October. The experts at J.M. Electrical will also be working alongside 621 Energy, LLC , the Massachusetts-based developer of the project.
“We are delighted to be working with J.M. Electrical Company on this important project because of their accomplished and comprehensive approach to solar and renewable energy projects, as well as their strong record for meeting project schedules and exceeding customer requirements,” said Bob Clarke, President of 621 Energy.
Along with reducing the school’s carbon footprint and helping officials reinvest in infrastructure with energy cost savings, J.M. Electrical technicians also installed a security system to contribute to the security of the system and monitor the safety of construction and maintenance workers on the site around the clock.
“We applaud the Adams-Cheshire Regional School District for taking the necessary steps to creating a more sustainable environment for their students and staff. Not only will these improvements lower the school district’s utility expenditure, it will also be used as an educational tool within the school,” said Adam Palmer, Project Manager at J.M. Electrical Company. “These new solar installations would not have been made possible without all of the partners involved, and we are pleased to help pass along significant energy cost savings that can be redirected into the reinvestment and rebuilding of the community.”
