Aquinnah Landfill

On November 2, 2011 Vineyard Power responded to a Request for Proposal (RFP), issued by the Town of Aquinnah, soliciting requests for the installation of a solar photovoltaic system on their one acre capped landfill.

The Town received two responses; Vineyard Power and Sunquest Energy, based in Florida. The Aquinnah Selectmen chose Vineyard Power with the town approving this selection at a Town Meeting on December 7, 2011.  

The 50KW array will produce enough energy to power the Town's Municipal electrical load including the Town offices, police & fire stations, library, street lights, and public bathrooms and eventually save the town over $10,000 per year in electricity costs.   We estimate this project will be producing electricity by the end of the 2012 and is one of the first solar installations on a  capped landfill in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
