TOWNSHEND — A solar project has been approved for the former landfill in Townshend.
The Vermont Public Service Board has approved an application to build a 149.5-kilowatt array at the landfill. The town applied for the project, which will be funded by private investors and built by Westminster-based Soveren Solar.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports the project is expected to cost just under $500,000.
The town expects a 10 percent savings on electricity.MORE IN This Just InBy Amy Ash Nixon Full StoryRICHARD'S POOR ALMANACK: On this day in 410 CE, Visigoths sack Rome and it isn't the first time, either; in 1859, Titusville, Pa., the first commercially viable oil well comes in; in 1918, the only World War I battle fought on U.S. soil in Nogales, Ariz. 0Rutland Herald content editor Rich Alcott uploads data direct to your head: On this day in 410...
