Finally a chance to learn more about “Community Solar” – a.k.a. group net metering.
I often get questions for residents and local energy volunteers about “Community Solar” – when a group of people who can’t put solar on their own homes buy into a larger solar array located somewhere else within their utilities’ electric grid. Below are two upcoming opportunities to learn about “Community Solar”. Contact me if you have questions about either event.

Upper Valley Energy Committee Roundtable (targeted at local energy groups)
Tuesday, April 28
Montshire Museum Community Room, Norwich VT
This year’s annual Upper Valley Energy Committee Roundtable will take place Tuesday, April 28th, at the Montshire Museum in Norwich, VT. The change of location this year is due to the growing interest in and attendance at this great event.
The Roundtable assists Upper Valley energy committees in carrying out their work by sharing information and providing networking opportunities, and to help those interested in forming new energy committees. Previous attendees will be receiving separate invitations.If you have not participated before and are interested in attending, please contact SERG@serg-info.org or 802-785-4126.
