Green Lantern Solar installs 500-kW ground-mount array for Vermont’s Chroma Technology

Green Lantern Solar

Green Lantern Solar, has completed a solar array for Chroma Technology, a Vermont-based certified B Corp and market leader in the precision optics industry. The 500-kW ground-mount array will produce enough energy to offset a third of Chroma’s annual energy expenses.

“This array will reduce Chroma’s operating expenses and have a real impact on its sustainability goals,” said Weston Martin, Director of Sustainable Partnerships, Green Lantern Solar. “We’re gratified to work with companies like Chroma who are taking real steps to demonstrate how costs savings and a clean energy future can be achieved.”

The virtual net-metered solar project was developed, constructed and is owned and operated by Green Lantern Solar and is the company’s most recently completed in its home state of Vermont. The energy produced by the 1,870 solar module array is approximately 958,200-kWh annually, offsetting the CO2 emissions from 82,602,601 smartphones charged and 123 homes’ electricity use for one year.

“As a Certified Employee-Owned B Corporation Chroma is committed to sustainable and socially responsible business practices,” said Newell Lessell, CEO, Chroma. “This new solar array will enable us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint even as our business continues to grow.”

Have you checked out our YouTube page?

We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.

Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.

We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
