PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city's been selected for a 1.8-megawatt photovoltaic installation, the first of several large-scale solar facilities being developed by Western Massachusetts Electric Co. and the largest in New England.

The facility could generate enough energy to power nearly 2,000 homes and is a "win-win" for the city, said Mayor James M. Ruberto.


The solar field, on a far corner of the brownfields-turned-business park, fits well with the park and is expected to draw interest in both what former the GE site and the city can offer existing businesses and startups, said David Rooney, president of the Berkshire Economic Development Corp. Rooney said the BEDC worked closely with the city and PEDA over the past year to secure the project for Pittsfield.
