Lebanon Mobile Home Community Celebrates Launch of New Solar Array

Nov 28, 2018

Residents of Mascoma Meadows manufactured housing community in Lebanon are celebrating the construction of a new solar array, the first in the state to power mobile homes in a resident-owned community.

At a ribbon-cutting ceremony Wednesday, city and state leaders heralded the project as a bellwether for efforts to connect low and moderate-income households with renewable energy.

The array is financed by a combination of state grant funding and a Revision Energy program connecting investors to community solar projects. It sits on land donated to Mascoma Meadows by a neighboring church. Vermont Law School and the law firm Primmer, Piper, Eggleston & Cramer also contributed pro bono work to the project.

The panels are expected to save households in the community about $300 per year.
