(Greenwich, CT) – Altus Power America, Inc. is pleased to announce the signing of a power purchase agreement with Rhode Island Turnpike and Bridge Authority (“RITBA’’). The 25-year contract will help the RITBA save on a large portion of its electricity usage and reduce its carbon footprint. This solar system will be located next to the Newport Bridge in Jamestown, Rhode Island. The ground-mounted system is expected to produce 642,560 kWh per year, offsetting the equivalent of about 40 average homes’ energy use annually.
Altus currently owns and operates five solar projects under the National Grid Rhode Island Feed-in-Tariff program. The RITBA project will be Altus’s first virtually net-metered project in Rhode Island. The solar system will be constructed by Park Avenue Solar Solutions, LLC, and is expected to achieve final completion during second quarter of 2016. “Altus looks forward to completion of this project and to helping RITBA achieve their long-term sustainability goals” said Tom Athan, Managing Partner at Altus Power.
