Ameresco to Build 18.6-Megawatt Solar Farm at Maryland Army Base

By Justin Doom

(Bloomberg) — Ameresco Inc., a provider of energy-efficiency and renewable-power services, won a contract to build
an 18.6-megawatt solar system at the Fort Detrick Army base in
Maryland.

Ameresco will build, own and operate the power plant, and
sell all electricity that’s generated to the Army under a 25-year contract, the Framingham, Massachusetts-based company said
Thursday in a statement. Terms weren’t disclosed.

Construction on the solar farm in Frederick is planned for
later this year, and it’s expected to be operational by March
2016. The plant’s output will cover about 12 percent of what
Fort Detrick requires.
