Innovative Engineering Solutions, Inc. (IESI) completed the Engineering, procurement and Construction for a 4,802 kW solar array for a Private Capital Investor in Franklin, MA.  This large property is also owned by the Mount Saint Mary’s Abbey monastery of Cistercian Nuns.  As with “Franklin 1”, the power produced is sold to the Town of Franklin and the Nuns collect rent to help sustain their facility (which included a windmill and a geothermal heated/cooled chocolate factory!).  This 24.9 acre site was forested and the cleared trees were used for lumber and biomass power generation.  Bedrock outcrops required blasting and ballasted foundations for a portion of this large ground mount system.
