Clarendon Solar Farm
The Clarendon Solar Farm is a 500kW solar array that comprises 2,160 individual solar panels situated on 3-acres in North Clarendon, Vermont.
This collaborative effort between Norwich Solar’s Community Impact Group, the Pinkowski Family, and Mpactful Ventures, PBLLC will provide clean energy in the form of solar net metering credits to four affordable housing communities operated by the Brattleboro Housing Partnerships. It is expected to save the nonprofit over $500,000 over the next 25 years.
Expected to generate roughly 1 million kilowatt hours of clean energy per year, this array supports Vermont’s clean energy initiatives, as well as the state’s commitment to land-use preservation.
Start to finish (including its responsible decommissioning plan), this solar farm brings investment, jobs, and more clean energy to Vermont, whose reliance on out-of-state energy is currently highest in the nation.
Brattleboro Housing Partnerships will receive the solar net metering credits on their Green Mountain Power electric utility bills each month, resulting in significant cost savings, and empowering them to further their mission to provide quality, affordable housing opportunities in viable communities for lower income households. RunTime Solar, a subsidiary of Norwich Technologies, will provide ongoing maintenance.
