Average Home in Vermont
Many homes in Vermont are not suitable for onsite rooftop or ground mounted solar. This can be due to a variety of reasons for example tree shading, insufficient land area, a slate roof or a poor roof direction. Community solar offers these owners a great alternative to receive the benefits of solar.
