ADDISON COUNTY — When the American settlers first crossed the Great Plains, they encountered native species of prairie grass like switchgrass and big blue stem.

Now those same grasses — seeded deep in the American perception of a rural aesthetic — are being sown in Addison County fields in an effort to make them an affordable and viable source of local energy.

Posted on July 21, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



NEW HAVEN — Burlington-based Cross Pollination Inc. reached a major milestone toward its proposed 2.2 megawatt solar power project off Route 7 in New Haven when on July 8 the Vermont Public Service Board (PSB) issued a certificate of public good.

But New Haven resident John Madden, saying the project would ruin the aesthetics of the region, asked the PSB to reconsider or alter its July 8 order. Within 10 days that a certificate of public good is issued, there is a window for individuals to file a motion of reconsideration.

MIDDLEBURY — The Middlebury selectboard has unanimously endorsed a proposal to install a 650-panel, 150-kilowatt solar array project on municipal land behind the local police headquarters on Lucius Shaw Lane. Organizers hope to be producing energy by the end of the year.

The project, being spearheaded by the Acorn Energy Co-op, would generate an estimated 172,500 kWh of electricity each year — enough to provide electricity to 30 average-sized homes, according to organizers.

VERMONT — Renewable energy advocates hope that a new law signed last week by Gov. Peter Shumlin will lead to a surge of solar power in the state’s energy grid. The Vermont Energy Act of 2011, which will take effect on July 1, mandates that all utility companies provide residential customers who use solar power with a 20-cent credit for every kilowatt-hour (kWh) of energy they generate.

MIDDLEBURY — A Monday morning fire at the Middlebury College biomass plant has forced the facility offline until repairs can be made.

Crews quickly concentrated the fire to one location within the building, extinguished the flames, and left the scene at about 9:30 a.m. No one was injured in the fire, and employees who had been evacuated from surrounding buildings were allowed to return to work.
