Southern sky energy manageSouthern Sky Renewable Energy installed a 6 MW solar array on a 16-acre capped landfill near Cape Cod Hospital in Carver, Mass. Via a net metering agreement with Southern Sky, the healthcare facility will save $200,000 to $250,000 in energy costs per year over the next 20 years, reports Wicked Local.

Southern Sky, which leases the landfill site and operates the Ravenbrook Farms Landfill Solar Facility, specializes in developing solar projects on closed landfills.

Cape Cod Healthcare wanted to procure solar energy off-site and issued a Request for Proposals, which resulted in its deal with Southern Sky. Wicked Local says the hospital gets a credit on its energy bill via the net-metering arrangement.
