FireFlower Alternative Energy completes development of solar project in Woburn, Massachusetts


Boston-based FireFlower Alternative Energy has partnered with Geriatric Medical & Surgical Supply and MassAmerican Energy to develop a rooftop solar array at 28 Torrice Drive in the City of Woburn, Massachusetts.

The solar array comprises 1,170 solar panels and 45 inverters, and comes with a 583 kW system size, which will annually create around 665,000 kilowatt hours of power.

FireFlower Alternative Energy founder Kathleen C. Doyle Doyle said, "Geriatric Medical has prioritized its contribution to sustainability, as well as energy independence.  Large-scale roof-mounted solar installations such as this benefit the environment by providing clean, renewable power at no additional cost to the building occupant, while helping the property owner's bottom line.

"Further, Geriatric Medical will sell its excess power to other environmentally-conscious businesses, maximizing the environmental benefit of the project."

Geriatric Medical CEO Jeffrey Siegal said: "This clean energy initiative is very important to our company.  Our team is proud that we have drastically reduced our carbon footprint, and our hope is to inspire other members of the community to do the same."

The 28 Torrice Drive solar array is net metered and interconnected to the grid, producing  renewable power. 

MassAmerican Energy is the installation vendor for this project.

Financing for the construction of the solar array was provided by East Boston Savings Bank.
