Solar engineering, procurement and construction firm groSolar has completed a 2.96 MW solar photovoltaic system in Shelburne, Vt. The electricity produced will be sold to Vermont utilities under the state's Sustainably Priced Energy and Economic Development program.

The Limerick Road Solar project is located on 15 acres of the 1,000-acre Meach Cove Farms. Project design and solar engineering was performed under the direction of L.W. Seddon LLC, and the installation and construction was managed by groSolar.

According to groSolar, the facility uses 9,878 Renesola 300 W photovoltaic modules mounted on a Schletter racking system. The company adds that DC power is converted into utility-grade AC power by five Advanced Energy inverters located in two PowerStation enclosures.
