Nov. 9. 2021 Update: Some Public Records on the 340 Tremont Street site are here.

Records from the Planning Board show a few key facts:

July 31, 2019: Carver Conservation Commission approved the project.

Sept. 24, 2019: Carver Planning Board approved the project.

Dec. 22, 2020: Beals & Thomas construction plans submitted to the Planning Board show solar mounted on steel posts. Page 16 of the PDF.

On December 23, 2020 PineGate emailed the “Carver Permitting Department/Building Commissioner” to report on “minor updates” to the project. This included a “transition from I-Beams helical piles to timber piles.” The Public Records don’t show any response from the Planning Board, Building Commissioner or Conservation Commission in response to the email. On page 59 of the PDF. The Beals+Thomas construction plans do not say this.

On February 23, 2021 the Town issued a Building Permit.

On February 24, 2021, a letter to the Town says PineGate has taken over the project, calling it Solar Carver 1 LLC and Solar Carver 3 LLC. PDF page 51.
