ACE: Coming to Lowell

American Capital Energy recently announced it would be moving its corporate HQ to Pawtucket Boulevard in Lowell. It outgrew its old digs in North Chelmsford and expects its rapid growth to continue. From its website:

American Capital Energy is the premiere solar engineering, procurement and construction contractor and solar developer in the United States. We help businesses adopt solar power as a viable cost-savings solution. We also work with utilities to meet their renewable energy portfolio standard requirements through strategic partnerships with solar photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturers and experienced installation companies.

Founded in 2005, ACE is a privately held, American-owned and operated company with roots in solar dating back to the 1970s. We have installed more than 40 MW of solar PV in seven states. Our projects include some of the most challenging brownfield installations and some of the largest solar rooftop arrays in the United States. We are also currently managing 20 percent of all utility-scale arrays under construction in the United States for 2010.

Our clients depend on us as a preferred vendor and partner. We are committed to delivering projects on time, on budget and exceeding power production estimates. Whatever a client’s project needs, ACE provides a finished solar array that is both good for the environment and good for business.

Kudos to Theresa Park and everyone else in DPD who helped make this happen. In a perfect world, more clean energy companies will see what ACE saw in Lowell, and a critical mass will form that will attract more fledgling companies to set up shop here.
