Greenwood Biosar, a solar engineering, procurement and construction contractor, has commenced construction on a 2.4 MWp solar photovoltaic power plant approximately 35 miles north of Burlington, Vt.

The solar farm is located in Vermont Electric Cooperative's (VEC) service territory, and as the hosting utility, VEC will interconnect the project to the electric grid and purchase a portion of the renewable generation output.

"Vermont Electric Cooperative is pleased to support Vermont's renewable energy goals by extending the benefits of solar power to Vermont consumers," says David Hallquist, CEO of VEC. "This project - one of the largest of its kind in Vermont - is an important effort to develop renewables here in Vermont."

Greenwood Biosar expects the project construction and interconnection to be completed in the fall.
