MBTA may go solar

The Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority may install solar panels at several facilities, including the Boston Engine Terminal, Readville Yard, and Iron Horse Park. The agency is currently studying the feasibility of installing the solar photovoltaic arrays as part of a larger energy conservation program. “There’s no downside I can see, as long as they can get the numbers to work,” said Brian Kane of the MBTA Advisory Board. “I would hope the energy would be used in-house, rather than sold back to the grid. That would make more sense.” Link to full story in BostInnovation.
