March 22 (Renewables Now) - US renewable energy company Ameresco Inc (NYSE:AMRC) said it is completing two solar projects in Rhode Island with a combined capacity surpassing 10 MW.

One of the two plants, a 4.95-MW installation on a former corn field in Tiverton, has already achieved commercial operation. It consists of more than 12,000 modules.

The other project, located in Cumberland, has reached mechanical completion and is expected to start commercial operation by April. It is a 5.71-MW facility comprising over 14,000 panels.

Both solar parks will sell electricity to airport system operator Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) under long-term contracts. They are estimated to provide more than USD 790,000 (EUR 942,000) in annual energy savings, according to David Anderson, executive vice president and director at Ameresco.
