650 kW multi-technology system

for Cape Cod Community College

Walden Renewables financed, constructed and owns a 650 kW system comprised of roof-top solar, ground mount solar, car-port solar, and wind. A 20 year PPA gives Cape Cod Community College access to low cost renewable power. Walden Renewables and its partner Turning Mill Energy benefit from a highly credit worthy off-taker and get full benefits from all RECs and tax-incentives generated by the system.

225 kW roof-top solar farm

Liberty Commercial Park - Commercial Real Estate off-taker

Walden Renewables financed, constructed and owns a 225kW roof-top solar farm with a 20 year PPA. This innovative structure moves the utility account over to WR. WR takes advantage of Massachusetts Net-Metering laws which allows it to get credits for any unused power. This protects the off-taker from paying for any power tenants don't use, and limits Walden's credit exposure to the off-taker.  Walden is pleased to partner with Turning Mill Energy on this project.

Solar Thermal Joint Venture

with premier Renewable Energy Management Firm

Walden Renewables will provide financing and structuring for 2 Solar Thermal test project.  Solar thermal is a highly efficient technology that has not received the same financial commitment as Solar PV or Wind.  Walden Renewables believes this under-resourced technology can provide outstanding returns to investors and much higher efficiency factors than competing products.
