Hopkins Hill Solar
About the Project
The Hopkins Hill Project is located in a rural area within the Town of West Greenwich. It will sell power to residents in West Greenwich as well as other residents in the state. To ensure the project is not visible from any neighboring residential properties, a vegetated buffer consisting of native plants will be installed. The project also incorporates a number of environmental benefits including sponsorship of two University of Rhode Island Watershed Watch water quality monitoring sites for the duration of the project, along the tributaries to Fisherville Brook. The site will be swept for turtles prior to construction, will include wildlife-friendly fencing, and a pollinator-friendly seed mix will be installed around the array perimeter.
The project was developed by Turning Point Energy.
Interconnection expected November 2020.
