Rutland’s first community solar array will be officially presented to the public Tuesday May 13th at noon on Hillside Road in Rutland. The ribbon cutting ceremony, facilitated by the Rutland Region Chamber of Commerce, will celebrate a solar array shared by 50 Rutland residents and businesses. The Community Solar Array is made possible by a partnership between NRG Residential Solar Solutions (NYSE: NRG) and Green Mountain Power (GMP). The agreement, which is one of the first of its kind between a utility and solar developer, gives customers solar power at no upfront cost and a credit on their GMP bills for the energy produced by the array.
The community is invited to share in this exciting event along with the Community Solar customers, Mayor Christopher Louras, President of the Board of Alderman David Allaire, and executives from GMP, NRG and groSolar. Guests will have the opportunity to view live data reporting of the array and enjoy catering from The Bakery.
