About the Hancock Shaker Village Solar Project

The Hancock Shaker Village Solar project is comprised of three solar installations totaling 7 MW in Hancock and Pittsfield, Massachusetts. Owned and developed by Syncarpha, these solar gardens offer Western MA residents the opportunity to cut down on their energy expenses over the long term, promoting local renewable energy production.

Importantly, this is achieved without requiring direct financial investment or rooftop installations from its subscribers. The project is expected to produce around 8.5 million kWh annually, benefiting roughly 450 residential Eversource customers within the Western Massachusetts Electric area.

Annual Solar Production: 8,500,000 kWh

Pounds of Coal Avoided: 6,544,149 lbs.

Barrels of Oil Avoided: 13,748

How Community Solar Works

Community Solar is a renewable energy program that allows homeowners, renters, and businesses to collectively access solar energy benefits without the hassle of installing expensive solar panels on their properties.

Through a no-upfront subscription, residents reserve a share of the output of our locally generated solar energy. In turn, subscribers earn credits on their electric bills, resulting in long-term electricity savings while supporting local, renewable energy.
