ConEdison Building 5.3-Megawatt Solar Project in Massachusetts

ConEdison Solutions, a unit of Consolidated Edison Inc., agreed to develop a 5.3-megawatt solar rooftop and carport system for the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

The $16 million project will save the university $6.2 million in utility bills over a 20-year power-purchase agreement, the unit of New York-based ConEd said in a statement Thursday.

ConEdison hired Brightergy LLC to design and build the project on six rooftops and canopies over two parking lots by the end of this year, the company said.

Before it's here, it's on the Bloomberg Terminal.
