January 21 (Renewables Now) - US energy efficiency and renewables firm Ameresco Inc (NYSE:AMRC) has bought Massachusetts-based solar operations and maintenance (O&M) specialist Maximum Solar.
The acquired firm presently manages more than 150 MW of solar power generating facilities throughout the northeastern US. It serves clients ranging from large utilities to owners of single 100-kW arrays.
