    North Coast Seafoods has recently completed the installation of a 117,950 Watt photovoltaic
    system designed to generate clean energy for use within their seafood processing and
    distribution facility. The system is composed of 674 Shell 175W photovoltaic modules, and 2
    Solectria inverters. Spire Solar, the design and installation firm designed the system to be
    completely roof penetration free. This was accomplished using their SteadyMount non-
    penetration ballasted mounting system. The system was analyzed to resist code wind
    loading and modified for local seismic requirements.
    The rooftop mounted solar array is designed to reduce energy costs of the facility. The
    energy production will be monitored in real time using Spire’s InSpire Solar Monitoring
    System, which will also provide automatic data uploads to the Massachusetts Technology
    Collaborative’s solar energy database.

4. Lessons Learned: Please describe lessons learned in each of the categories below. Think
   about what went well, what went wrong, what you would do differently next time, and how you
   would advise someone else going through this process. Please comment on schedule,
   budget, interaction with your utility, permitting, as appropriate.

       1. Siting & Permitting of Renewable Energy System

       There was a perception by some contractors that City of Boston electrical permits are allowed to be applied for
       within 5 days of commencement of work. We now believe that the permit is required prior to commencement of
       work. After the project had begun, Spire was asked to include some union labor on certain tasks of the
       installation. Spire complied but there was some confusion as to whether the union labor taking place was
       covered under the electrical permit pulled by the non-union electricians. In the future, all labor must be paid
       prevailing wage so we don’t expect a repeat of this problem. We would not expect to have 2 different electrical
       contractors working concurrently on the same project again.

       2. Renewable Energy System Installation

       We did not initially expect a requirement to include seismic provisions on the mounting system. We worked with
       our structural engineer to modify the mounting system accordingly. The modifications were not included in the
       original budget and had to be absorbed by Spire.

       3. Interconnection of the renewable energy system

       Nstar was extremely helpful throughout the interconnection process despite our somewhat unreasonable
       scheduling requests. We were not aware until completion that a $500 witness test fee applied. With the goal of
       completing the system by June 30 , we attempted to get Nstar approval days before hand. This was difficult, as
       Nstar requires final sign off by the City inspector prior to their witness test. We therefore had to wait for the City
       to inspect the system in order to schedule the utility witness test. In the future, this issue will be unavoidable
       within the City of Boston and should be factored into the project schedule.

       4. Commissioning of Renewable Energy System

       After the initial startup, we identified a ground fault on the larger (90kWinverter) array. We eventually traced the
       problem to worn insulation on a positive DC conductor. The insulation had been cut by the edge of an “LB”,
       which is what the electricians call the component used as a 90 degree bend/pull box for conduit. This is a very
       commonly used component and we were shocked that it would be capable of cutting the wire insulation. We
       also found that the onsite AC waveform was severely distorted due to other equipment operating in the facility.
       This issue caused confusion with the 90kW inverter. Solectria worked to modify their power algorithm so that we
       can run in parallel with the odd waveform while they work towards a more robust solution.

6. Operations and maintenance: Who will be responsible for preventive maintenance?
   Routine maintenance and repairs? What is your operations and maintenance plan with
   regard to your Renewable Energy System? What are your anticipated operations and
   maintenance costs?

     Spire carries a 5 year warranty on the system. Routine maintenance will be performed by North Coast
     Seafood’s in house electricians, Allstate Electric, with Spire’s support as required. Spire contracted the
     installation to Allstate so that they would be familiar with the system and prepared to address any
     routine O&M issues. There are no expected yearly O&M costs.

7. RECs: What do you plan to do with the renewable energy certificates (RECs) associated with
   your renewable energy system?

    North Coast Seafoods is currently negotiating with SREC brokers for the best contract possible.
