Boston law firm Sherin and Lodgen LLP’s Renewable Energy Group represented STAG Industrial, Inc. in connection with rooftop solar leasing for two solar installations – its first in Illinois and fifth in Massachusetts. The projects are part of community solar programs and will provide low-cost renewable energy to local homes and businesses. With the addition of these sites, STAG now hosts over 13.5 MW of solar nationally.
The Sherin and Lodgen team, led by managing partner Douglas M. Henry and partner Jennifer L. Ioli, continues to represent STAG in the rollout of a nationwide solar rooftop program. Facilitated by Black Bear Energy in partnership with STAG and developed by Green Street Power Partners (“GSPP”), these systems have an aggregate capacity of 3.5 MW and will generate over 4.4 million kWh of electricity annually. Construction on both projects began in July 2020.
