Falmouth State Representative Matt Patrick was the author of key portions of the Green Communities Act of 2008 that provide for innovative approaches to developing renewable energy. This important legislation empowers a group of individuals and businesses to participate in the benefits of renewable energy.
In 2009, the concept for the Brewster Community Solar Garden® Project was born. The facility site lease was acquired through a process involving a town meeting vote, a request for proposal, and a successful response and negotiation with the Town of Brewster. It was a substantial effort, but now it is a reality.
The Brewster Community Solar Garden® Project is in a prime position to capitalize on the present political, environmental and economic realities of solar in our region. Through our cooperative approach, proper communication, and long-term vision, this model will flourish and reinforce Brewster’s tradition for leadership and vision—at the very core of the Sea Captains’ Town.
