Project Summary

Blueberry Hill Inn, a four-season getaway in Goshen, Vermont, and a fellow member of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility, is naturally committed to reducing their impact on the environment, and protecting natural resources. This ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) array fits perfectly into their Triple Bottom Line values of simultaneously boosting their environmental, social and financial health. The Blueberry Hill Inn solar PV system will offset 90% of their electric bill for the next 25+ years.
