Burrillville Community Solar

ISM Solar® is nearing completion of the first community solar farm in the Ocean State. Once operational, the solar farm will deliver clean energy and electric bill savings directly to Rhode Island homeowners.

The project location is a commercial lot that was previously cleared. Installation required minimal soil disturbance. A farm stand will continue to operate on the property. The community and landowner have therefore produced maximum economic benefit from the property,

ISM Solar® is the only company building a solar farm in the small Pascoag Utility District service territory. A unique agreement, to instead interconnect the project to National Grid’s electric power system, was approved by the state Public Utilities Commission.
