One of the largest new solar projects in Massachusetts is now churning out power from the roof of a hulking industrial building in Hyde Park.

The Boston/Dedham Commerce Park has installed 3,300 solar panels on the roof of its building, a mixed-use office space that is home to companies such as Dancing Deer Baking Co. and the nonprofit Hyde Park Open Studios.

The solar arrays will generate 974 kilowatts of power, enough to provide about two-thirds of the electricity needs of the building’s tenants.
