Support Grows for Big Massachusetts Solar Facility

LCG, Jan. 7, 2002--A five megawatt Massachusetts solar power facility that would be the largest in the Northeast United States is moving forward with a state-funded feasibility study and backing from the city of Brockton and Bay States Gas Co., the Boston Globe reported yesterday.

The facility would be built at a vacant industrial site near downtown Brockton, a city about 15 miles south of Boston, which was best known in the 1950s as the home of Rocky Marciano, the "Brockton Blockbuster," who was boxing's heavyweight champion from 1952 to 1956.

''The facility would produce no noise, no pollution, and there is no traffic associated with it,'' said Lori Columbo, a consultant who works with the city of Brockton on contaminated former industrial sites. ''It is a proven technology, but it is expensive to build.''

Some critics of solar power contend that no such facility has been built that has produced as much energy as was expended in its creation.

According to the Globe, the feasibility study, paid for by Massachusetts, is scheduled to be completed in June. The city and its public-private development agency, Brockton 21st Century Corp., would seek federal and state subsidies for construction.

The Brockton facility would cost about $7 million per megawatt, the paper noted.
