"Not only are we reducing the city's carbon footprint, but we're also realizing some really serious economic benefit in the form of a 20-year agreement with Ameresco, the developer, which will realize us almost $2.5 million over the life of the 20-year project," explained Jim McGrath, Open Space Manager.

Ameresco operates similar solar setups in Lenox and Stockbridge in Berkshire County.
