New project jointly developed by Encore Renewable Energy and Tangent Energy Solutions will break ground in the spring.

Vermont Business Magazine Encore Renewable EnergyBromley Mountain Ski Resort and Tangent Energy Solutions announced their plans to develop and build a 615kWdc solar project on land owned by Bromley Mountain in Peru, Vermont. The resort has implemented several sustainability initiatives over the last two decades, including energy efficiency upgrades to their buildings and snowmaking activities. The new project jointly developed by Encore and Tangent Energy Solutions will generate clean, locally generated solar power and help Bromley reach their sustainability goals.

“As a lifelong skier and winter sports enthusiast, I continue to be both encouraged and impressed with the Vermont ski industry’s ongoing commitment to reducing their energy footprint with proactive efficiency and renewable energy measures,” said Chad Farrell, Founder and CEO of Encore Renewable Energy.

Sunwealth, one of Encore’s strategic partners, financed the project and will own and operate it for the life of the system. This project is the 6th collaborative effort between the two companies which has resulted in over $5MM of economic activity in Vermont. It also allows commercial customers like Bromley Mountain Resort to secure the social, environmental and economic benefits of attaining significant portions of their electrical demand from clean, renewable resources with zero money out of pocket. 

“This partnership with Encore will allow the Sun Mountain to fully live up to its name with a new solar array. In addition to advancing our investment in sustainability, it also comes with the added benefit of reducing our carbon footprint,” said Bill Cairns, President/GM of Bromley Moment Resort.

Bromley Mountain is no stranger to sustainability and has long been a leader when it comes to “green power” in the Green Mountains with their strong commitment to energy conservation. Since 2000, Bromley has adopted almost every available energy efficiency technology in snowmaking. They continue to implement energy efficiency measures which recently included an upgraded snowmaking pump-house system with new, state-of-the-art Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) motors.

Construction will begin on the project this winter and the project is expected to be completed before summer 2021.
