groSolar has completed the 2.96 MW Limerick Road Solar photovoltaic power plant in Shelburne, Vt. The facility, designed and built under the direction of L.W. Seddon LLC, is located on 15 acres of the 1,000-acre Meach Cove Farms.

The solar facility uses 9,878 Renesola 300 W PV modules mounted on a Schletter racking system. Advanced Energy supplied five of its inverters located in two PowerStation enclosures. The plant is expected to produce approximately 3.45 GWh of electricity per year. The power produced will be sold to Vermont utilities under the state’s Sustainably Priced Energy and Economic Development program. 

"As an organization, we conduct research on projects which provide renewable energy alternatives to fossil fuels," says Christopher W. Davis, manager of Meach Cove Farms. "This solar project represents an important step forward in reducing our dependence on fossil fuels and creating clean, renewable energy for the community."
