Amirian Joins Solar Firm; Co. Plans Downtown Project

Merrimack St Plan

Sven Amirian, a former Haverhill city councilor, has joined MassAmerican Energy, Marlborough, Mass., as vice president of business development.

Amirian recently stepped down as president of the Greater Haverhill Chamber of Commerce. According to a press release, he delivers experience in renewable energy, green construction and government policy. According to the Massachusetts secretary of state, the company was organized last September.

The company also announced this week it will provide a 130 kilowatt solar system for the rooftop of a Merrimack Street building owned City North Development. The chamber of Commerce is located in the same building.

Gerry McSweeney, of City North said the rooftop installation will supply about 80% of the building’s energy needs.
