Longwood Gardens Solar Project
The Longwood Gardens Solar Project is a ground-mounted solar photovoltaic system that will be at least 1/0 MW DC in size. The project is part of a larger plan which includes energy efficiency and conservation. It will generate roughly 1.2 million kWh of electricity in its first year, offsetting approx 20% of the electricity use at Longwood Gardens. The project will be in the public eye, as the gardens attract apprx 800,000 visitors annually. The project will be finalized through a Power Purchase Agreement between a subsidiary of Integrys Energy Services, Inc (a project company specifically created to own this solar energy facility) and Longwood Gardens Inc.
