Nautilus Solar Energy and TurningPoint Energy recently broke ground on Rhode Island’s largest community solar project, King community solar. Due to groundwater contamination from an adjacent superfund site, the 200-acre site located in North Smithfield, was not optimal for residential or commercial use, making it an ideal location for a new 12.44-megawatt community solar farm.

The King solar facility, which gets its name from one of the former landowners, is the last and largest of six authorized community solar projects in the state.
