Landfill solar project submitted to Public Service Board

Posted: Updated:

BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A proposal to construct a solar energy project on a closed and capped landfill in a Vermont town is being considered by the state Public Service Board.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports an application for a certificate of public good was submitted on Nov. 16.

Windham Solid Waste Management District Executive Director Bob Spencer says officials anticipate the certificate will be issued in March or April, allowing for construction of the 5-megawatt solar array next summer in the town. Construction is expected to take three to four months once approvals are secured.

The application says the project will connect to Green Mountain Power's distribution system and that new poles will be added at the site.
