Brewster is on the verge of approving zoning rules for solar arrays (Articles 16 and 17 on the Nov. 7, town meeting warrant) but they've inked a lease for a two-acre solar panel array on land at the Water Department off Freeman's Way.
The lease is for 30 years and was signed with My Generation Energy of Dennis.
"We arranged it like any other business in the industrial park area," explained Luke Hinkle, President of the company, which is based on Great Western Road. "We're paying them an annual lease. The energy will be provided to the grid. The net metering credits go to the members of the co-op; the Brewster Community Solar garden Cooperative."
The cooperative is open to Brewster residents and businesses only and shares are still available.
