Duke Energy Renewables, Integrys Solar, Canadian Solar Inc. and Community Energy Solar have completed the Berkley East Solar Power Project, a 3 MW solar power plant in Berkley, Mass.

Taunton Municipal Lighting Plant (TMLP), a municipal electric utility that provides service to more than 36,000 electric and Internet customers in Taunton, Raynham, Berkley, North Dighton and sections of Lakeville, is purchasing the power generated from the project under a 25-year agreement.

The Berkley East Solar Power Project is co-owned by Canadian Solar and INDU Solar Holdings - a joint venture between subsidiaries of Duke Energy and Integrys Energy Services.

"We're very pleased to announce the addition of this valuable resource to the TMLP power supply portfolio," says TMLP General Manager Michael Horrigan. "Environmentally speaking, it's absolutely the right thing to do; it will avoid approximately 1,500 tons of global warming carbon dioxide emissions annually. Our customers will benefit from the project by purchasing power at competitive rates and by the savings in transmission, line losses and generation costs with the reduction in TMLP load at or near peak times."
