We have in Vermont a completely stupid law that limits the amount of power the power companies have to buy back from homeowners. That law has slowed the installation of solar panels on homes, even those panels that are leased by companies like SunCommon. But if the leasing were reversed, not homeowners leasing panels but power companies leasing roofs, we would gain in the long term, starting with the power companies not needing to purchase land.
Between viewing Irene damage and looking at real estate, I've enjoyed using Google Maps' satellite feature. But it was while using it to sign up for information about leasing solar panels that I realized something about the city of . Looking down on it from above, one is struck by the acres and acres of roofs open to the sky. From the ground, especially approaching the Roshe Run Youth

city from the south, one gets the impression that we are a very green city, but in reality, most of those trees line our streets, not our property lines.
Look down on our downtown. Just how many acres of rooftop are there along Merchants Row, Center Street, on the Plaza, behind the Plaza? Easily as many acres as the proposed site in Town.

How best to use solar power
A solar farm needs a means to connect to the grid. A rooftop solar installation only needs a special meter to be connected. A solar farm uses up arable land, not just ugly to look at but a waste of land we could use in the future for farming. We all know that small family farms are barely economically feasible right now, but the growing need for both local and regional sources of food to combat the spread of food borne illness and reduce artificiality in food is probably going to tip that balance in the next decade and make small farming viable again. The site of the present solar installation north of the city could have been put to better use for a neighborhood garden for apartment dwellers. Put a solar installation in a field and add the kind of 3 foot snowfall we saw a few years ago, and you have a need for extra maintenance. Put those panels on a roof, add some anti stick panels to the roof edge and the edges of the solar panels, and you don't need to clear the panels of snow.
Enid Reiman asked if Vermont wants to be a viable state or a national park. Why does it have to be either/or? When we discuss solar power, why are we hung up on the idea that solar panels on the roof are for private usage and generation facilities are destined to fill our open land? It is simply not logical.
in becoming a solar generating state. We just need to climb out of the mental rut and see our state as the birds do.
