Shutesbury Road Solar

PureSky Energy (formerly known as AMP) is proposing a 9.35MWDC (4.4 MWAC) ground-mounted solar photovoltaic installation with an accompanying battery energy storage system. The solar array will span 41 acres on an approximately 102 acre site owned by W.D. Cowls, Inc. The 102 acres is split up into three separate parcels (9B/11, 9B/12, and 9B/27) and sits down hill from residential properties off Shutesbury Road. For further detail on the project location, please see the map below.

The Shutesbury Road Solar project will be the largest solar array Amherst has ever seen. Discussions and preparations have gone as far back as two years. The applicant (PureSky Energy) is currently working with the Town on the Fort River Solar Project (site of the former Hickory Ridge Golf course).
