Starksboro project tests feasibility of solar power

Posted on August 15, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



STARKSBORO — In October of 2010, the town of Starksboro took major steps to revamp its energy portfolio by installing 25 solar power arrays mounted on trackers on 1.5 acres of land adjacent to Robinson Elementary School.

From the outset, one of the main goals of this project was to net zero energy consumption for the school and town buildings. Put another way, town and school officials sought to produce as much energy using solar as they drew from the electric power grid in the course of a year.

State offers incentive for solar panel users

Posted on July 25, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



ADDISON COUNTY — A new law requires electric utilities give a credit to their customers who produce some of their own power through home solar power panels. The credit is 20 cents for every kilowatt hour their units produce.

When the roughly 14-cent-per-kWh cost of power purchased from Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS) or Green Mountain Power (GMP) is factored into the mix, a solar customer will receive an approximate 6-cent credit called an “adder” for every kWh used and produced.

By John Flowers



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.

New law could energize solar power

Posted on June 2, 2011 |
By Andrew Stein



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.
