    Solar project set

    for former landfill

    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.
