Landfill Solar Information from the Green Lantern Solar Team

Customers throughout GMP territory may now order wattage in the planned 150kW Newfane Browns Road (landfill) Community Solar Array.

Please contact Ralph Meima (802 380-1029) if you are interested, or visit our Community Solar Array inquiries web page at http://greenlanterndevelopment.com/community . The web page includes a calculator where you can model various purchase scenarios. Remember to hit “Calculate” to generate scenarios, and hit “Submit” when you have an order scenario (along with your contact information) that you would like us to review and get in touch with you to explore.

Community Solar is a great way to enjoy the energy benefits, tax incentives, and net metering credits of solar without having to accommodate an array on/in your own house or yard.

We received our Certificate of Public Good several weeks ago and expect to build the array during the coming summer. Inquiries and orders have risen steadily over the past several weeks, and now is the time to research the benefits of Community Solar, evaluate our offer, and make your Newfane Browns Road commitment if you have not yet done so.

All the best from the Green Lantern Solar Team!
