Real Goods Solar and Gestamp Solar today announced plans to construct 4.8MW of solar projects in Vermont (US). Construction on the two solar installations, 2.3MW in Pownal and 2.5MW in Williamstown, is slated to begin later this month and the projects are scheduled to complete by the end of the year.
The ground mounted solar arrays will be owned and operated by Gestamp Solar and designed and installed by RGS Energy, the commercial and utility division of Real Goods Solar.
Together the projects are designed to generate 5,500MWh per year and 100% of the energy produced will be purchased through a feed-in tariff under the Standard Offer Program of Vermont's Sustainably Priced Energy Development (SPEED) Program.
