PUTNEY — Leaders of a solar project in Vermont are hoping to attract investors.
The SunFarm Community Solar project has leased a vacant field in rural Putney to construct 624 fixed solar panels over an acre. That would produce as much as 150 kilowatts of power.
The Eagle Times reports (http://bit.ly/QDIlwA) project leaders are offering 1,500 shares for purchase to Green Mountain Power customers in order to receive credit on their utility bills over an extended period of time.
SunFarm founder Nick Ziter comes from a line of entrepreneurs in Windham County, with ties to the Putney Inn and A Vermont Table in Putney, and the old Ziter’s Market in West Brattleboro.
SunFarm hopes to start construction before the end of the year.
