Billerica, MA, USA: Brockton Brightfield (435 kW PV) to be Inaugurated
http://www.solarbuzz.com/News/NewsNAPR691.htm

An environmentally remediated brownfield that now features a 425 kilowatt (kW) solar energy system will be inaugurated on October 26, 2006

The PV system was designed and constructed by Global Solar Energy Inc., using SCHOTT Solar modules manufactured in nearby Billerica, Mass. Brockton's installation of this new brightfield (a solar energy power plant located on a brownfield) has transformed a community liability into an environmental, educational and aesthetic asset. The Brockton Brightfield will be the largest solar energy plant in New England, and the largest brightfield in the nation.

At the ribbon cutting and dedication event celebrating the completion of the brightfield, federal, state and local officials, solar industry experts and community leaders will provide insight and background on this unique solar energy installation and the future of renewable energy in Massachusetts.
