IBEW Local 96 signatory contractor, Mass Electric Construction, has been awarded and is underway with two large-scale solar projects in Central Massachusetts: a 6.3 MW ground-mount solar array in Charlton, Massachusetts and a 2.8 MW solar array in Uxbridge, Massachusets.

The Charlton project commenced on March 29 and a crew of approximately 40 IBEW Local 96 electricians is expected to perfomr installations at peak construction. The solar array is expected to be completed within three months.

The Uxbridge solar farm will be constructed with a crew ranging upwards of 20 Local 96 electricians at peak construction, with project completion expected to be in early July.

In 2017, Mass Electric and IBEW Local 96 completed the large-scale solar installation at the capped former landfill on Greenfield Street in Worcester. The 8.1 MW solar array, the largest municipal solar array in New England to date, is producing electricity equivalent to powering approximately 1,340 homes annually, equivalent to about 20 percent of the city’s municipal electricity budget.
