GAAMHA partners with BCC on Mill St. solar project

 

June 26, 2014

Gardner, MA – GAAMHA, Inc. is proud to announce their agreement to partner with Boston Community Capital on the new Mill St. solar array in Gardner, MA. The idea was first proposed by Mayor Mark Hawke last fall that GAAMHA could possibly benefit from a partnership with BCC. With the facility going live, GAAMHA will receive net metering credits from the power produced at the on megawatt facility which will drastically reduce GAAMHA’s costs and dependence on fossil fuels to power our properties.

On hand for the ribbon cutting ceremony were GAAMHA CEO Tracy Hutchinson, Business Director Shawn Hayden, and Operations Director Bob Della Valle. Along with Mayor Hawke, Ms. Hutchinson was given an opportunity to address the audience of stakeholders, beneficiaries, interested citizens, and news media. “GAAMHA is proud to be part of Boston Community Capital’s solar project, as we always seek ways to reduce our expenses and still provide quality services.” said Ms. Hutchinson. “We are expecting to save $10,000 annually. Cutting the money from one line item will allow us to use that money for our services to the community instead.”
