Renewable Energy Atlas Provides Easy Access to Information On Wind, Solar, Hydroelectric, and Other Resources

The Renewable Energy Atlas of Vermont is a tool for identifying, analyzing, and visualizing existing and promising locations for renewable energy projects. You can click on a town (or several towns or county / counties) and select from a thorough suite of renewable energy options: biomass, efficiency, geothermal, hydroelectric, solar, and wind. The map at the left shows the location of existing roof-mounted solar photovoltaic systems in Bennington County. The Atlas provides several analytical reports on each energy source that is mapped (e.g., existing capacity, potential generation, and certain constraining factors). The BCRC will be using this and other information to improve the Regional Energy Plan and assist in the process for siting new renewable energy projects in the region.
