Another setback for Candlewood Mountain solar project as contracts get cancelled

Companies are canceling agreements to buy power from the proposed solar farm on Candlewood Mountain.  The Newstimes reports that a letter was sent to the Massachusetts Department of Public Utilities saying that the company contracted with Candlewood Solar have sent written notice of termination of their respective power purchase agreements.  According to the letter, Candlewood Solar didn’t notify the companies in writing ahead of a deadline about whether it satisfied Critical Milestones like being approved for required permits.  The grassroots opposition group Rescue Candlewood Mountain called the cancellation a huge setback for the project and a boon to the protection of an endangered species.  Ameresco planned to offer access of up to 20 megawatts of renewable energy.
