MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — On August 6, Governor Peter Shumlin cut the ribbon on the South Ridge Solar facility, the first completed 500 kW solar net metering project in Vermont. The project is providing power to Middlebury College as part of the institution’s commitment to become carbon neutral.

“The South Ridge Solar project is a model partnership that will help to achieve Vermont’s renewable-energy goals,” said Middlebury College President Ronald D. Liebowitz. “Not only will the College benefit, but the town of Middlebury will as well as it becomes an ever-more attractive place to do business.”
