Shaftsbury Solar Project - Information
Residents have approached the Selectboard and Planning Commission with concerns over a proposed 20MW solar project in Shaftsbury.
The first official notification to the Town is attached. While the Town is holding a public meeting on February (8th) about the project, the final decision will be made by the State Public Utilities Commission. Links below will help residents understand the hearing process.
During Monday night’s Selectboard meeting (3-13-2023) members of the public stated they were unaware of a direct line set up by Shaftsbury Solar to contact them with questions or comments.
The following is the last paragraph of the 45 day notice that has been posted on the Town webpage:
We here at Shaftsbury Solar hope that you will support this Project given the benefits it will provide and its limited impacts. In the meantime, we invite you to contact us with any questions or comments at the contact information below, as we welcome your input and suggestions to make this a successful project. Sincerely, Peter Ford VT Real Estate Holdings 1 LLC (aka “Shaftsbury Solar”) Email: email@example.com Phone (610) 984-4755.
