A ground-mounted solar installation erected on a former oil terminal in East Providence will allow the Rhode Island Public Transit Authority (RIPTA) to save money on electric costs.

Under a remote net energy agreement with the project’s developer, Kearsarge Energy, RIPTA will receive energy credits for power generated by the 6,000-plus waterfront solar panel array on Dexter Road. RIPTA officials estimate that buying the credits from Kearsarge will save the transit authority at least $250,000 annually.

“As we move toward adding more zero-emission electric buses, we know that they will need charging infrastructure and that finding economical and eco-friendly energy sources is of increasing importance,” said Scott Avedisian, RIPTA’s chief executive officer.
