Boston Scientific wanted a large-scale solar installation that could withstand hurricane force winds along the New England Coast. But it didn’t have the $5.2 million needed to move forward. After signing a 20-year power purchase agreement with ConEdison Solutions, the company received a 3,920-panel system with zero up front capital costs. Boston Scientific went solar for free. And even after Hurricane Sandy, the 1.28 MW installation still generates enough clean electricity to power the equivalent of 125 homes.
