About Solar Power
GMP Solar Power makes electricity out of bright futures.
As part of our continuous effort to incorporate renewable sources of energy into our fuel mix, GMP Solar Power offers financial incentives for Vermonters to install solar panels. GMP Solar Power also makes investments in new solar plants. Available to both residential and commercial customers, GMP Solar Power helps keep fossil fuels off the grid and adds another clean source to GMP’s mix of renewables.
Upon merging with CVPS, GMP Solar Power added a significant amount of solar power generation to its resources. Included in that addition is the 264-panel array along one of Vermont’s busiest highways, Route 7 in Rutland Town. Combined with our Berlin Solar Plant, this array doesn’t just help to cleanly power Vermont, but serves as a working classroom for students and others interested in homegrown, emissions-free energy. Self-directed tours are available at the Renewable Education Center (REC), which includes a walking path through the panels and educational displays that outline all of GMP’s clean energy efforts. To arrange a guided tour click here to email GMP.
To see how a solar plant is built, take a moment to watch the time-lapse video of the construction of GMP’s Berlin Solar Plant.
