Editorial: Solar power/town aesthetics? It's not an either-or proposition

Posted on March 24, 2014 |
By Angelo S. Lynn



The Vermont Senate killed a bill on the floor last week, 21-8, that would have provided towns some control over how solar power projects were sited. Among other things, the bill, S.191, sought to require ground-mounted solar installations to comply with the same town zoning and screening requirements as does other commercial development.

Shoreham considers solar power co-op

Posted on March 13, 2014 |
By John Flowers



SHOREHAM — A Shoreham couple is trying to organize a local “community-owned solar cooperative” through which residents could become investors. The payoff for investors, they say, would be net-metering credits applied against their monthly electric utility bills.

Home Improvement: Homeowners get solar panel options

Posted on April 1, 2013 |

ADDISON COUNTY — Spring is in the air, the days are getting longer and for some homes and businesses, the increased sun exposure may mean more than starting gardens, wearing shorts and slathering on SPF-65.

A growing number of homeowners around Addison County are considering putting photovoltaic solar panels on their rooftops or in their yards, which until recently constituted a substantial up-front investment — from $10,000 to $100,000, depending on the size of the home and the location.

Ferrisburgh to move forward on Encore solar project

Posted on February 18, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — About three months after the offer was first made, the Ferrisburgh selectboard on Feb. 5 voted unanimously to sign a letter of intent with Burlington firm Encore Redevelopment that could pave the way for a solar array on town-owned land.

Encore officials believe that a lease deal for a parcel at the intersection of Routes 7 and 22A could put almost $500,000 in Ferrisburgh’s coffers over the next two decades.

Ferrisburgh officals lukewarm to land lease for solar

Posted on January 3, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



FERRISBURGH — The town of Ferrisburgh was presented in November an offer to lease about 3.5 acres of its 34.9-acre parcel next to Vergennes, an offer that according to the company making it could be worth about a half-million dollars over its 20-year term.

But the selectboard has yet to carefully study whether that claim is accurate or enter into serious negotiations with Encore Redevelopment, the Burlington firm proposing to lease the land and put a solar panel array on it that would produce 700,000 kilowatts a year.

Parcel near Lodge at Otter Creek eyed for solar farm

Posted on January 3, 2013 |
By John Flowers



solararrayfield4067_0.jpg

MIDDLEBURY — Developers of the South Ridge neighborhood off Middle Road in Middlebury are seeking permission to install a 500-kilowatt solar farm on a 3.3-acre parcel near the Lodge at Otter Creek.

The project, if OK’d by state utility regulators, is expected to generate enough electricity to power more than 100 homes while remaining relatively inconspicuous due to the topography and surroundings of the three-acre parcel on which it would be sited.
