)-- Onyx Renewable Partners L.P., “Onyx,” announces the completion of three solar photovoltaic ground-mount projects in Vermont. A fourth project is under construction. The total portfolio size is approximately 2.5 MWDC and will generate 3,119,904 kWh in the first full year of operation.
The four projects will reduce overall CO2 emissions by about 38,981 tons, equal to taking 8,207 vehicles off the road for our client Killington Resort, which is owned by POWDR, a family owned and operated adventure lifestyle company.
Onyx constructed the ground-mounted solar photovoltaic systems on leased private property to supply clean renewable power to Killington Resort and its sister ski area, Pico Mountain. The Vermont portfolio includes projects in Ferrisburgh, Orwell, Addison, and New Haven Vermont.
The first systems attained commercial operation and have been approved by Green Mountain Power, the fourth location in New Haven is currently under construction with expected completion in October 2017. The systems were constructed in a little under 3 months.
Onyx CEO, Matthew Rosenblum says, “Our development team did a fantastic job building this project in such a timely manner, we would like to thank the Towns of Ferrisburgh, Orwell, Addison, and New Haven for their support in making this project happen.”
Onyx partnered with Namaste Solar to manage Engineering, Procurement, and Construction for the four projects. Heath Mackay, Co-Owner and Project Development Manager for Namasté Solar says, “We are thrilled to have worked with POWDR, Killington Resort, Onyx and the towns of Ferrisburgh, Orwell, Addison, and New Haven to develop and build this portfolio. These projects are a testament to POWDR’s commitment to supporting the deployment of clean energy resources while reducing their operational expenses.”
