HBRF goes solar powered!
The HBRF campus, which consists of ten buildings along Mirror Lake Road has installed a 40.6 kilowatt ground mounted photovoltaic array at Pleasant View Farm, and is expected to produce 44,700 kilowatt-hours of clean electricity each year. The commercial installation is the result of a partnership with Renewable Energy Development Associates, of Portland, Maine, who integrated the project. Read the Green Energy Times article.
The project was funded through an outside investor and HBRF currently purchases the power generated by the array through a Power Purchase Agreement with the investor. We will have the opportunity to purchase the system outright in 2020, which will save the organization thousands of dollars annually in electricity bills. If you wish to make a donation to help us achieve this goal, please contact Anthea Lavallee, Deputy Director, at (802) 432-1042.
