J&J Contractors, Inc was contracted by NEXAMP ENERGY to perform all of the site work associated with two solar projects in Western Massachusetts. Fairview Farm in Whately consists of a 2.4 Megawatt system totaling 8,129 panels spanning over 10 acres of land with the Allard’s Farm in Hadley system adding another 3 Megawatts to the project.
These projects included all underground utility work, new access roads, erosion control barriers, dams and swales, all concrete vaults and pads and final grading and landscaping. The majority of the excavation work was performed over the winter and required winter condition measures such as heating trenches, excavation through frost, and protection of all open excavations from the elements.
The J&J team along with NEXAMP worked diligently through some unforeseen conditions and extreme elements to keep the projects on schedule and meet all of the mile stone dates. Both projects finished ahead of schedule and we considered a success by all.
