WAMC Northeast Public Radio: VT’s Largest School Solar Array Online
Crossett Brook Middle School in Duxbury now has Vermont’s largest school solar array.
Governor Peter Shumlin and others threw the switch on the 157-kilowatt solar array Thursday. It is the largest such system at a school in Vermont.
Shumlin was joined by state and local officials and representatives of the solar power company that installed the array, SunCommon, and Green Mountain Power, Vermont’s largest electric utility.
The 480-panel array can produce enough electricity for about 30 homes and it’s expected to save the school thousands of dollars in electricity costs.
