Community Solar is Available to All Vermonters Now,
not just Green Mountain Power Customers
Groton, VT April 24, 2015
Green Mountain Community Solar (GMCS), a Groton, VT based company, announces panel ownership in its group off-site solar farms is now available to any Vermonter or Vermont business, not just those with Green Mountain Power accounts.
Previously, community solar farm participation was limited to subscribers in the same utility service territory as that of the solar farm. Now, any Vermonter, including all those who are served by utilities other than GMP such as Burlington, Ludlow, Stowe, Readsboro, Swanton, Orleans, Northfield, Morrisville, Lyndonville, Johnson, Jacksonville, Hyde Park, Enosburg Falls, or Barton electrics, or Vermont and Washington Electric coops may participate in farms run by GMCS.
Electric credits generated from any of GMCS’s solar farms may now be monetized by any Vermont resident, business or nonprofit who buys panels in one of its group off-site solar farms. These panel owners are compensated either through a monthly credit on their GMP account or now through direct payment, which can be applied by the panel owner to his/her non-GMP electric utility bill.
“Making off-site group solar farms available to any Vermonter makes the solar tent larger and more inclusive. With the value of solar electric credits now being able to be assigned to any Vermonter, so many more residents, renters, businesses and nonprofit organizations can share in the environmental and economic benefits of solar panel electric generation,” says Bruce Genereaux, resident of Norwich and manager of GMCS.
With one community solar farm in operation in Groton and two more scheduled for construction this summer, GMCS will be able to serve more Vermont residents and businesses.
