Barton Solar Farm

barton solar farmBARTON- Construction in Barton is currently underway for a 25 acre solar farm. Barton Solar has partnered up with Essex Capital Partners to develop a 1.89 mega watt photovoltaic electric generation facility, also known as a solar farm.


The project is under the Vermont SPEED Standard Offer Program. The program started in 2005 to promote the development of in state energy sources which use renewable fuels.

The goal of the SPEED program is to have 20% of statewide electric generated by SPEED resources that use renewable energy by January 2017.

The Barton project is helping towards that goal. The farm will produce three million kilowatt hours per year, generating enough energy to power over three hundred homes.

The system commissioning date is expected to be held on November first.
