Delaware will soon be home to two of the largest solar energy projects, being developed by Freepoint Solar. The city of Dover, Delaware will be their first major client, according to Delaware Business Times.
Freepoint Solar is developing a 114 megawatt Cedar Creek Solar Project in Townsend, and a 50 megawatt Raceway Solar Project in Harrington. Both of these will surpass the current largest solar array in the state, the 12 megawatt Milford Solar Farm.
[“We are excited to be a leader in the state’s effort to utilize increasing amounts of solar energy. Those contracts will provide our customers with affordable, clean and locally generated energy for the next 25 years,” City Manager Donna Mitchell said in a statement announcing the power purchase agreement. “Freepoint Solar has been easy to work with. We look forward to benefiting from this new relationship for many years to come, through competitive generation costs for the city of Dover, economic activity for local businesses, and a better environmental footprint for our planet.”] via Delaware Business Times.
