Altus Power And Wire & Plastic Machinery Corp. Begin Construction on Solar System Through Rhode Island’s Feed-In-Tariff Program

(Greenwich, CT) – Altus Power Management has signed a PPA (Power Purchase Agreement) with Wire & Plastic Machinery Corporation taking advantage of the Rhode Island feed-in-tariff program through National Grid.  Altus was awarded the project through a Rhode Island Distributed Generation Standards Contract in the July 2012 bidding process.  The feed-in-tariff will allow Altus Power to sell power to Rhode Island National Grid at a fixed rate for 15 years.  The 499 kW system is the largest system that Altus Power has financed to date and is expected to generate almost 600,000 kWh of energy annually.  The energy produced by this system will provide clean energy that will be distributed throughout Rhode Island’s electricity grid.  Solar Developers, KRN Solar, has been contracted to build this project.
