About Community Solar
We are excited to bring two community solar projects to the area! Our first installation will be a 220kW roof mounted system at the Vermont Mill in Bennington VT. The second installation will be a 180kW ground mounted system on the grounds of Shadowbrook Farm in Bennington VT. Membership is available for purchase by homeowners, businesses and nonprofits.
Your membership price to participate in the project is $3.75/watt, of which $3/watt goes towards installations costs. The remaining $0.75/watt will be held in an escrow account to pay for annual expenses such as property taxes and insurance for the lifetime (25 years) of the system. This is a onetime payment that removes annual dues associated with participation in the project.
Your Community Solar memberships are eligible for the tax credits for either your home or business! Our project has been structured in a way that guarantees a 10 year payback for all residential membership and a 6-8 year payback for participating businesses.
