Vineyard Power Completes 99kW Array in Chilmark

 

Thank you to everyone involved in the construction and completion of our 99kW solar array on the landfill in Chilmark. 

A special thank you to the Selectmen, South Mountain and GHD. 

 

The project came online on October 2, 2014 and is producing power enough power to offset over 50% of the Town of Chilmark's municipal demand. 

 

Welcome to Vineyard Power Cooperative

Offshore wind south of our island

Since 2009, Vineyard Power sought to create a renewable energy future, owned and guided by islanders with an ultimate goal of building a community owned offshore wind farm.

The Department of Interior’s Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) began a process in 2009 to develop offshore wind off of the Atlantic Coast. 

Vineyard Power, along with members of our Renewable Energy Task Force and local and state politicians, have continually requested to BOEM that those communities most impacted by offshore wind farm development receive direct benefits from the these projects

On June 17, 2014, BOEM released the Proposed Sale Notice for the upcoming auction for the Massachusetts Wind Energy Area.  After much lobbying, we are pleased to annouce they included a 5% discount to those developers with a Community Benefit Agreement. 

We expect the auction to occur at the end of 2014 for a 1200 square mile area, 12 nautical miles south of Martha's Vineyard.

Now is the time to get involved!  For more information please call our office at 508-693-3002. 

Vineyard Power Cooperative

Vineyard Power is a 501(c)12, non-profit, energy co-operative based on the island of Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts.
Our mission, as a 21st century utility company, is to produce electricity from local, renewable resources while advocating for and keeping the benefits within our island community. 
Our vision is to be Martha's Vineyard's community-owned utility company. 
These goals will be accomplished through several commercial scale solar installations, an offshore wind farm, and the implementation of smart grid technology.
