Description:


Ninety-six solar panels line the south-facing roof of the Farm Barn at Shelburne Farms. They are an educational demonstration project for the Farm, and reflect its commitment to renewable energy. The panels have been generating about 15% of the Farm Barn’s total electricity needs since being installed in March 2010. The Farm also continues to invest in energy conservation. The panel installation is reversible, which preserves the Barn’s underlying historic character, and will allow the Farm to pursue new energy technologies as they emerge.

Shelburne Farms is a nonprofit education organization, 1,400-acre working farm, and National Historic Landmark. Its mission is to cultivate a conservation ethic for a more sustainable future, by teaching and demonstrating the stewardship of natural and agricultural resources.

The solar panel project was supported by Green Mountain Power Corporation, private donors and a 50% matching grant from the Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund.
