Green Lantern Solar’s nearly 100 solar and solar+storage projects annually produce approximately 75 Gigawatt-hours of clean, renewable electricity. These projects generate over $1.5 million in annual utility savings to Green Lantern customers and thousands of tons of carbon emission reductions. Green Lantern’s development and construction operations have made positive impacts throughout Vermont and the Northeast by utilizing local contractors for all projects, supporting local landowners with annual lease payments, and driving dollars into local and state coffers through tax revenues.
A recent study by Daymark Energy Advisors shows new solar projects in Maine have already stimulated $60 million in economic activity supporting hundreds of Maine jobs; and projects in the pipeline are projected to drive nearly $800 million in economic activity and support thousands of Maine jobs while drastically reducing carbon emissions by displacing fossil fuels.
