Syncarpha Capital, a full-service solar developer, owner and operator of community solar farms, has received a permit to operate its first Maine-based community solar project. The Solar Array is located at the intersection of Route 3 and Riverside Drive in Augusta, Maine.
This 6.5 MW solar array is expected to power approximately 1,050 Maine residents connected to Central Maine Power.
The ground-mounted solar system was built on land purchased by Syncharpha partner Acadia Energy from the Maine Department of Transportation. About 10 unused acres of the 30-acre purchase were donated to the nearby Sportsmen’s Alliance of Maine to help preserve Maine’s outdoor heritage.
Michael Atkinson, director of development at Syncarpha Capital, said: “It is always a great feeling for us to see residents and the environment benefit from transforming unused spaces. We are excited to help them reach their clean energy goal of 100% and look forward to seeing more community solar across the state.”
