GMP to build solar array in Berlin, largest in northern New England

first_imgGreen Mountain Power customers will be especially happy to see the sun shine in Berlin, Vermont, where the Company will build the largest solar array in Northern New England. At 200 kilowatts, the new array will be the largest project in Vermont when it is built this summer.”Building a large solar generator is an important step towards reaching our vision of supplying customers with power that has low carbon emissions, low cost and high reliability,” said Mary Powell, president and chief executive officer of Green Mountain Power. “Solar power is extremely low in emissions, and perhaps best of all, with the help of declining solar costs, grants and tax credits, this project will be cost effective for our customers.”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, Vermont, to build the plant. “We very consciously bid the project among Vermont companies so this project would support our green economy and create jobs here at home,” said Ms. PowellThe permitting process has begun and the project is expected to be completed this summer. “This solar plant will be an important milestone for Vermont in terms of realizing cost-effective, utility scale solar generation,” said Leigh Seddon, vice president of Alteris Renewables.The Berlin project will be Green Mountain Power’s third solar installation. The Company recently installed a 58-kilowatt solar power system at GMP’s Westminster, Vermont, service center, which supplies 80 percent of that facility’s electricity needs. It also has four-kilowatt solar panels at its Colchester headquarters, which provide enough electricity to power its two plug-in hybrid vehicles.Green Mountain Power will develop a website with generation data about the plant, which will be accessible to the public and particularly useful to school groups who study renewable energy and choose to tour the site.”In Vermont, we are always happy to see the sun shine,” said Ms. Powell. “This gives us one more reason to rejoice on a sunny day.”About Green Mountain PowerGreen Mountain Power (www.greenmountainpower.com(link is external)) transmits, distributes and sells electricity and utility construction services in the State of Vermont in a service territory with approximately one quarter of Vermont’s population.

The pool yard has a covered area and overlooks a heated pool, manicured lawns and tropical palms. In Helensvale’s Riverdowns Acreage Estate, the property is on 4003sq m and comes with a water tank, chicken coop and 20 solar panels. 20 Warrego Way Helensvale“We modernised the bathroom and the laundry when we first moved in,” Mr Bennett said. “There are spotted-gum floors and beautiful timber finishes on the doorways.” He said his daughter had her own bathroom while he and his sons shared the man cave.“The garage space has been great,” he said. “I restore old Falcons and I’ve got a workshop with lots of storage. 20 Warrego Way HelensvaleRAIN, hail or shine, David Bennett said the windows in his Colonial-style home remained wide open.“It looks like a Queenslander, but the home is actually brick veneer with a Colonial wraparound veranda,” Mr Bennett said. “It is the best place to be when it rains; we keep the windows open and the house is filled with beautiful breezes and the smell of rain. “The veranda keeps the home sheltered from all elements, but it stays really well ventilated. The roofline covers 80 squares of the house, so as you can imagine we are high and dry.” last_img read more
