The sun is shining for us in Vermont
To develop the renewable energies of tomorrow, innovative energy projects are required, like the Stafford Hill solar farm in Vermont, featuring 7,700 solar panels spanning a 15-acre property. This farm generates 2 MW of electricity, enough to power 2,000 homes during periods of full sun, or 365 homes per year. The project also comprises a solar storage component whereby 3.4 MWh can be stored in a battery system. This power can then be used during peak periods and as backup power for a local emergency shelter in the event of a critical situation affecting the electrical grid. Energir is proud of investments in Green Mountain Power, which owns this project.
Through projects providing the most solar per capita in the region, Rutland has become the solar energy capital of New England and is setting an example using energy innovation as a focal point for economic development and revitalization.
