Green Lantern Solar is closing in on 100 solar projects as construction gets underway at sites in East New Haven and Underhill. After a brief break due to COVID-19 work stoppages, Green Lantern is safely and cautiously leading the economy forward with these large outdoor construction projects, keeping hardworking Vermonters employed in the state's resilient renewable energy sector. Upon completion of these and other upcoming projects, Green Lantern will have provided Vermont's utilities with an additional 38 MW (AC) of new in-state solar power, from sites located in 66 Vermont towns.

These projects, all of which have been constructed under Vermont's successful net-metering program, directly benefit more than 50 school districts and towns throughout Vermont, as well as major employers throughout Vermont (including Cabot Agrimark Dairy Cooperative, Sugarbush, Mt Snow, Brattleboro Memorial Hospital, Smuggler's Notch and others). These entities utilize the net metering credits from Green Lantern's projects to save significant amounts on their electric bills. Aside from clean energy, Green Lantern's projects also generate lease payments for the property owners and tax payments to the State.

"The Mount Mansfield Modified Union School District is excited to be participating with Green Lantern in 'multiple' solar projects. The economic, environmental, and social benefits are meaningful for our schools. We are always interested in opportunities with companies that represent local interests. The projects will provide most of our annual power needs, thereby reducing our annual operating budget. They dovetail perfectly with our goals to work towards environmental sustainability and support our communities." -John Alberghini, Superintendent, Chittenden East Supervisory Union

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
