Borrego Solar Systems Inc. has partnered with Soltage Greenwood, a joint venture between Greenwood Energy and Soltage LLC to develop a solar project, launched by Casella Waste Systems on its Coventry, Vermont landfill site.
The 2.7 megawatt (MW) project will sell power to Vermont Electric Power Producers Inc., a purchasing agent appointed by the Vermont Public Service Board, under Vermont’s Sustainably Priced Energy Development Standard Offer Program – one of the nation’s first feed-in-tariff programs.
The energy produced by the system is expected to generate approximately 3,199 MW hours annually. Now in its construction phase, the 9,018 panel ground-mount solar array will be installed on the site’s buffer zone, which is not slated for waste.
