PowerMarket, SunRaise flip switch on large Maine community solar project

Last month, a 7.45 MW community solar project in China, Maine, went live and has begun feeding clean energy to Maine’s central electrical grid. This is the fourth community solar project where PowerMarket, a community employee solar management company, and SunRaise, a New England developer, owner and operator of solar energy, are collaborating in Maine.

The community solar project provides access to more than 1,000 Mainers to support clean energy in the state. In addition, these subscribers receive savings on the community solar credits they earn by participating in the project.

“There has been a lot of discussion about reduction targets we need to meet to mitigate the impacts of climate change,” said Patrick Jackson, co-founder of SunRaise Investments. “Community solar will continue to play a huge role in our ability to achieve these goals nationally and here in Maine. This project brings us another step closer to where we need to be.”

Through its partnerships and relationships in Maine, PowerMarket ensured that the Chinese community’s solar project was fully enrolled before the project went online. While there are no more spots for subscribers to the Chinese Community Solar Project, Mainers interested in participating in Community Solar can participate in the Market Street Community Solar Project in Gardiner, Maine, through PowerMarket’s marketplace.
