9 Vermon solar projects getting more than $442K in grants
WAITSFIELD (AP) - Nine solar projects in Vermont are going to get more than $442,000 in grants to help provide power for schools and communities.
The money is coming from the Clean Energy Development Fund, which was created to increase cost-effective and environmentally sustainable electric power resources.
Gov. Peter Shumlin announced the grants Tuesday during a visit to Northern Reliability, a solar business in Waitsfield. A grant of $80,000 is going to that town to install a 102-kilowatt solar project on the town garage to power Waitsfield's municipal buildings.
Other grants are going to Richford, South Strafford, Thetford, Warren, Sharon, North Thetford, Berlin and Shrewsbury.
