The Manheim New England auto auction in Dighton held a dedication for a major ground-mounted solar energy installation on its Route 44 property Monday morning.
Officials from the company, which is owned by Cox Enterprises, said that they decided to construct the 3-megawatt, 10,000-solar panel installation for both economic and environmental reasons.
“First, we wanted a legacy of doing what’s right for our customers and the community,” said Keith Mask, vice president for energy and engineering for Cox Enterprises. “I wouldn’t say that the environment or the financial benefit takes priority over one or the other. We can have the best of both.”
