groSolar Hosts Phillips Student Visit to Wisconsin Solar Project

Sixth grade students from Phillips Middle School toured a brand new solar energy facility in the Town of Flambeau on Tuesday morning.

The 20-acre photovoltaic facility, dubbed the Flambeau Solar Partners project, has come to fruition over the past year following a partnership between groSolar — a Vermont-based solar firm and the Dairyland Power Cooperative.

The project provides clean renewable electricity to the Price Electric Cooperative. The station, currently the largest solar array in the state of...

This week end, we were pleased to contribute a short article to Rome, New York's Rome Sentinel newspaper. The article summerizes the ways in which groSolar's forthcoming solar project, to be constructed not far from the Mohawk Valley Community College campus, will pair renewable energy with local education. The article titled, "Solar for MVCC pairs education and development" was written by our own Director of Marketing and Communications and can be found here.

groSolar is pleased to be mentioned in the recent Midwest Energy News article titled, "In Wisconsin, rural co-ops powering state's solar growth." The article discusses Dairyland Power Cooperative's planned 15 megawatts of solar development in 2016. groSolar is pleased to be developing 2.5 megawatts of this project in Philips, Wisconsin. groSolar's project, on behalf of the...

Our Director of Marketing and Communications was very pleased to contribute a Guest Column to New York’s Oneida Dispatch. The article describes some of the economic and environmental benefits of a project currently in development in Oneida, New York.  

Dairyland Power Cooperative has completed power purchase agreements for a series of solar projects throughout the state of Wisconsin. This year, groSolar will design and construct a 2.5 megawatt project in Phillips, Wisconsin. In one year, the project will produce enough clean energy to power 285 homes. In one year, 2.5 megawatts of clean power is also the equivalent to taking 430 cars off the road or offsetting carbon filtered by 53,000 trees. Read more about this project here.

groSolar and partner, Urban Grid, LLC have been awarded a solar contract with Allegany County, Maryland. The contracts calls for two solar arrays, each of 1MW (DC). groSolar will do the design, engineering and procurement (EPC).  Read more about the project here

The National Aquarium in Baltimore announced that it avoided nearly 4,500 metric tons of carbon thanks to its purchase of solar energy from the Cambridge Solar project built by groSolar. Read the full story HERE.

PLAINFIELD, Vt. – September 25, 2015 – Goddard College and groSolar jointly announced today that groSolar is developing a solar project to provide power to the Vermont school. The 500-kilowatt project is expected to offset about 68 percent of the College’s total electricity load with solar energy.


“I am pleased to take this significant step with groSolar to help Goddard move toward its goal of carbon neutrality,” Goddard President Robert P. Kenny said. “The College explored many options that would accomplish this power offset and settled on this arrangement with groSolar as...
