Officials at Middlebury College in Middlebury, Vt., have signed an agreement with Williston, Vt.-based AllEarth Renewables to create a 143 kW solar farm consisting of 34 solar trackers that are expected to produce an average of 200,000 kWh annually.

The solar farm will be located on about 1.5 acres of college land on Route 125, west of McCardell Bicentennial Hall, Middlebury's science facility.

AllEarth Renewables' solar trackers, which are mounted on poles, use GPS and wireless technology to actively follow the sun throughout the day, producing more than 40% more energy than fixed solar panels of the same size, the company says.

AllEarth will subcontract the installation of the site to Weybridge, Vt.-based Backspin Renewables, which will begin work in February and complete the project this spring.
