Green Mountain Power plans to install a new solar array – its third solar installation – in Berlin, Vt. At 200 kW, the new array will be the largest project in Northern New England when it is built this summer, the utility says.
The solar generator will be located on Green Mountain Power property west of Montpelier on a site that is ideal for a solar installation, with open space and good sun. Using a competitive bid process, Green Mountain Power has chosen Alteris Renewables (formerly SolarWorks and Solar Wrights) of Montpelier, Vt., to build the plant.
The permitting process has begun, and the project is expected to be completed this summer. Green Mountain Power will develop a Web site with generation data about the plant, which will be accessible to the public and will be particularly useful to school groups who study renewable energy and tour the site.
