Solar Farm

2.2 MW Local Solar Farm

On July 11 2012 the team and I took a visit to the currently largest solar farm in Vermont. The project, located in South Burlington, Vermont, is backed by the local Renewable Energy developer AllEarth Renewables. They provided 382 of their AllSun solar panel trackers for the project. The AllSun Trackers are pole mounted solar panels that use GPS to track the sun throughout the day which the company says allows them to produce 40% more energy than fixed solar panels. Each panel is equip with it's own inverter thus making the system more eficient.
