(CVEC) formed out of a strategic planning process undertaken by the Cape Light Compact (CLC) in 2007 With passage of Green Communities Act (GCA) in 2008, the opportunity for CVEC changed from wholesale energy development to Net Metered municipal energy development CVEC PV Initiative Round 1 and Round 2 work in conjunction with the GCA to provide Net Metered municipal energy development Now in CVEC Round 1 (~16MW for 7 municipalities) and CVEC Round 2 (~20MW for 10 municipalities and districts) Yarmouth not in Round 1 because Round 1 primarily capped landfills

3 Background on Broadway Electric  76 year old Boston-based electrical contractor  Third generation owned  DCAM certified  Licensed electricians  Most installed base of PV in Massachusetts  Previous experience installing for school districts MWRA Deer Island
