April 21, 2022, Wayne, PA – As the developer of a 6.99 megawatt (MW) ground-mounted solar project in Central Maine Power (CMP) territory, Dynamic Energy Solutions, LLC sought a corporate partner that could benefit from the project as part of Maine’s Net Energy Billing (NEB) Tariff program. The effort led to a strategic offtake agreement with Jadex Inc. (Jadex) for its LifeMade® manufacturing facility in East Wilton, Maine.
Through the solar project’s creation of utility bill credits, Jadex will recognize a significant reduction in their annual electricity spend and benefit from clean, renewable solar energy. In keeping with Jadex’s corporate initiative to develop sustainably manufactured products, the company was an ideal partner.
“As part of the development and disposition process of our Maine project portfolio, Dynamic Energy found a great partner in Jadex. Between their electricity needs, financial acumen, and purpose-driven approach, Jadex fit the bill,” said Tim Carr, SVP of Commercial Business Development at Dynamic Energy.
“At Jadex, we are committed to bringing sustainable products to market and to reducing the environmental footprint and operational costs of our manufacturing processes. Having a partner like Dynamic Energy aids us in achieving these goals,” said Brian Searfoss, President of LifeMade Products LLC, a Jadex company.
The Norridgewock project also provides the landowner with a long-term annuity and factors into the State of Maine’s Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) goal of 100% renewable energy by 2050 (https://www.maine.gov/energy/initiatives/renewable-energy/renewable-portfolio-standards).
