After first announcing the project in peak ski season, Encore Renewable Energy has now completed a 615-kW solar project for the Bromley Mountain Ski Resort in Peru, Vermont. The project was jointly developed by Encore and Tangent Energy Solutions.
“As a lifelong skier and winter sports enthusiast, I have seen first hand how climate change is impacting winter here in Vermont. It’s inspiring to see and support Bromley’s leadership on implementing energy-saving and carbon-reducing measures,” said Chad Farrell, Founder and CEO of Encore Renewable Energy. “This project also demonstrates the value of solar generation assets such as this for reliability and resiliency purposes, as this solar project is sited on the same property as the customer.”
Sunwealth, one of Encore’s strategic partners, financed the project and will own and operate it for the life of the system.
“Our new solar array is allowing the Sun Mountain to generate clean, affordable and locally sourced energy from the sun and one more thing to celebrate this holiday season,” added Bill Cairns, President/GM of Bromley Mountain Resort. “We are deeply committed to sustainability and continuing to reduce our carbon footprint and grateful to partner with Encore on this journey.”
Bromley Mountain is no stranger to sustainability and has long been a leader when it comes to “green power” in the Green Mountains with their strong commitment to energy conservation. Since 2000, Bromley has adopted almost every available energy efficiency technology in snowmaking. They continue to implement energy efficiency measures which recently included an upgraded snowmaking pump-house system with new, state-of-the-art Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) motors.
