Tradition Energy Helps City of Springfield Save Thousands With Community Solar Agreement

Stamford, Connecticut, March 15, 2022 – Tradition Energy announces that it recently advised the City of Springfield, Massachusetts, on a community solar agreement that will save the City more than $800,000 over the next 20 years.   The community solar agreement continues Springfield’s commitment to renewable energy.  In 2020, Tradition helped the City eliminate a minimum of $3.7 million from its budget with a similar renewable energy purchase.

Community solar in Massachusetts allows businesses, public entities, and residents to subscribe to an offsite solar project without placing solar directly on their property.  The program enables the City of Springfield to reduce its retail electricity costs and realize immediate savings with no upfront cost while supporting clean, local energy.  The City receives energy savings in a bill credit on their retail electric bill based on the amount of energy produced each month by their subscribed portion of the solar project.

“We commend the City of Springfield for their leadership in municipal community solar and are proud to support the City as its sustainability goals evolve,” said Alan Kurzer, CEO, Tradition Energy.
