Projects: Barrington Power has both client and PPA owned installations ranging in size from 16 kilowatts to over 1.4 megawatts of solar electric and several integrated systems combining energy efficiency, hot water, heat pumps, battery storage and wind energy. The key to its client appeal is its commitment to maximizing renewable energy technology and construction of funding solutions that both save clients money while providing a reasonable return to Barrington Power’s investors.
Approach: A typical project might be 145kw solar electric installation at Mt. Ascutney Hospital in Windsor, VT. The field mounted array located on the hospital’s campus uses a unique layout to deal with several overlapping utility right of ways and complicated boundaries.. At the same time the enclosed arrays are used as a pasture for sheep which allows the hospital to demonstrate and display its sensitivity to the needed integration of renewable technology and traditional uses of land in Vermont.
The system is part of a three project plan adopted by the hospital to make use of solar credits to lower operating expenses. By signing a long term power purchase agreement Barrington Power was able to establish an ownership structure and take advantage of federal and state subsidies, lower the capital costs for systems and pass along a portion of the benefit to the hospital in the form of lower operating expenses.
When completed, it is expected that over 80% of the hospital’s electricity requirements will come from renewable solar electricity without the hospital having to make a capital investment. At the same time, the hospital will have achieved a significant savings on its electricity costs.
