Vermont Technical College will be proceeding with the installation of a 500 kW solar photovoltaic project at the college's campus in Randolph Center, Vt. Construction is set to begin immediately and be complete by February 2016.
The project will consist of 100 5 kW AllEarth Series 20 dual-axis solar trackers manufactured by AllEarth Renewables Inc. of Williston, Vt.
Vermont Technical College will receive net-metered energy credits from the installation, and the solar array will also benefit utility Green Mountain Power's distribution system by reducing peak loads in the summer months. The project is expected to produce nearly 1 million kWh annually.
‘The college site is an ideal location to not only to create renewable energy, but also invest in the next-generation Vermont workforce,’ says David Blittersdorf, president and CEO of AllEarth Renewables.
