Hartford Pike Solar

Project Story


SunLight General Capital, acquiring the services of Newport Renewables, a local solar installation firm, and Terrasmart, a racking provider, has begun construction on a 6.2 MW project which is expected to be fully operational in January, 2021. The project is structured in two tranches: Tranche 1 will provide electricity to the grid through Rhode Island's Renewable Energy (RE) Growth Program, and Tranche 2 will provide Community Solar electricity to local subscribers through Rhode Island's Community Net Metering Solar Pilot Program. Covering approximately 12 acres, the system comprises approximately 15,800 solar panels.

In partnership with Arcadia, a leading platform offering clean energy solutions to utility customers nationwide, the 3.4 MW Community Solar project will offer clean energy and savings to more than 500 local Rhode Island residents. 

This project began accepting applications in August 2020, and has already signed up more than 100 subscribers.
