About the Tewksbury Landfill Solar Project

The Tewksbury Landfill Solar project is a ballast-mounted, community solar garden constructed on the 50-acre Sutton Brook Disposal Area also known as “Rocco Landfill”. The project became operational in February 2022 and provides clean energy to the City of Everett, Tufts University, and local National Grid residents. The project produces enough clean energy annually to power about 400 homes, equivalent to avoiding harmful CO2 emissions from about 3.5 million pounds of coal burned.

Whether you’re a homeowner or renter receiving electricity through National Grid, you can take advantage of the many benefits this project has to offer by subscribing at no upfront cost. After subscribing, you can expect to receive your solar benefits within a few months.

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.

Step 1

You Join

You subscribe to a nearby solar garden online for free. Complete our simple enrollment form and we'll connect your electric account to a local project.

Step 2

We Produce

Our solar gardens produce clean energy in to the power grid. That clean energy is allocated to you in the form of credits on your electric bill.

Step 3

You Benefit

Your credits drastically reduce your electric bill. Solar Gardens will invoice you separately for your credits at a guaranteed discount.
