FRAMINGHAM, MA - Bose Corporation has just brought a 1.7 megawatt solar installation online.
The fixed-tilt, ground mounted array of nearly 4000 solar panels is located on the southern side of what locals commonly refer to as "Bose Mountain" an industrial area off Route 9, near the Southborough town line.
The array which was designed, constructed and financed by SunPower® (www.sunpower.com), is expected to generate 2.4 million kilowatt hours of energy per year.
Through a 20-year Power Purchase Agreement, SunPower will operate and maintain the solar installation which Bose anticipates will provide a substantial portion of the electricity needs for the Bose Mountain campus.
In a press release describing the installation, Sam Nguyen, SunPower executive Vice President, Commercial Solar was quoted as saying "We're proud to be working with Bose to further advance solar development in the Commonwealth, and to support the company's [Bose] commitment to long-term sustainability as a leading global brand."
