Vermont Business Magazine Vermont-based Bullrock Renewables announced today it is building a 3.3 megawatt "SPEED project" in Bristol.
The project, dubbed "Bristol Solar," is slated to be operational this October. In the coming months, 12 full-time employees will be dedicated to constructing the ground mount array.
The South Burlington-based company was founded in Vermont in 2017; in addition to advancing solar projects in Vermont, the renewable energy construction firm has developed a wide range of solar projects throughout the region, including sites in Connecticut, New York, and Maine.
"This SPEED project in Bristol was at risk of not being built with permits expiring," said Bullrock Founder and Chairman Gregg Beldock. "We’re able to make complicated projects work. I am excited to have this Vermont project in our growing solar portfolio."
Vermont established the Sustainably Priced Energy Enterprise Development Program (SPEED) program in 2005 to encourage the development of renewable energy sources in the state.
Bullrock Renewables is the leading solar company in Vermont, with operations throughout the Northeast. The company offers a unique list of solar services and award-winning construction expertise.
The company has created and developed a large portfolio of solar projects, including rooftop arrays, car ports, and ground mount solar fields, while specializing in everything from planning, installation, finance, maintenance, monitoring and facility management.
Bullrock has implemented an aggressive growth strategy to build, own, and operate solar energy projects throughout the United States. The South Burlington company takes a vertically integrated approach to solar projects, which allows for faster, more efficient engineering, construction, funding, and utilization of tax equity.
In early February, Bullrock Renewables, announced the formation of a joint venture with Missouri-based NXTGenREA and New York-based Delaware River Solar to construct, own, and operate 250 megawatts of solar projects throughout New York State by 2025. The three companies will develop, construct, and own one of the largest community solar portfolios in the US.
