Happy Earth Day from the Green Mountain State!
It’s no secret that Vermont is a known clean energy leader. In fact, Green Mountain Power (GMP), the state’s largest electricity utility and the world’s first utility to receive a B-Corp certification, recently announced plans to become 100% renewable by 2030.
And the success doesn’t stop there – across the state, companies and organizations are thriving in the renewable energy space. GMP’s Stafford Hill Solar Farm is the first known solar storage project in the country, repurposing brownfield land once used to bury waste for generating solar energy. Rock Art Brewery, based in Morrisville, is the first brewery in Vermont to be 100% solar powered. Additionally, University of Vermont (UVM) ranks in the top 10 schools for sustainable energy and energy reduction, and the UVM Medical Center is among the greenest in the nation.
