Support our Local Electric Company - Hyde Park Electric
APRIL 16, 2014 7:00 pm - Town Offices, 344 Route 15 West
COMMUNITY SOLAR PROJECT - GRANT DEADLINE MAY 9
A large portion of our community's imported power contracts end in a few years. As a result we have the opportunity to add community solar before we renegotiate new out of state contracts.
Having a more sustainable community can attract business to our town which keeps money in the community. Moving to renewable power helps our community assist Vermont in achieving the states energy goals. With the rising costs of fuel oil and gas, solar energy provides a way to help stabilize our electricity prices. Solar energy is a renewable, clean power source which helps us reduce our impact on climate change.
Hyde Park has an opportunity to apply for a grant for $125k to provide half the funding for a town owned community solar project. We need to show community support to win this money. Come and find out more at the Hype Park Energy Committee meeting on Wednesday April 16th at 7PM in the town office..
We will have snacks!
From the tree-lined historic Village with the Governor's Mansion, to the majestic mountaintop views of nearby Mount Mansfield and Smugglers Notch, to the prestine Green River Reservoir, with its 19 miles of undeveloped shoreline, there is a special feeling in Hyde Park.
The Village is nestled along the banks of the beautiful Lamoille River, surrounded by Vermont's lush Green Mountains. Hyde Park has welcomed visitors for more than two hundred years! Once the destination of the wealthy from New York and Boston who traveled via train to spend their summers in the country, Hyde Park has become a destination for vacationing visitors from around the globe. Visitors can now stay at the Bed and Breakfasts provided by the Fitch Hill Inn and the Governor's Mansion, try a "farm stay" at Stony Brook Farm, or reserve a site and play at the Common Ground Campground.
Located in the Lamoille River Valley in the heart of northern Vermont, the region is the fastest growing in the state. The education, opportunities for entrepreneurship, superb infrastructure, public transportation, and four-season natural beauty bring many to visit, and many to make their homes here. The world famous resort village of Stowe, Vermont is located just eleven miles south along the Scenic Route 100 Corridor. Hyde Park and the surrounding north-central Vermont region offer legendary fall foliage,spectacular skiing, VAST snowmobile & VASA ATV trails, stunning summers, incomparable accommodations, spas, recreation, including the Lamoille Valley Rail Trail, dining, and shopping.
Hyde Park's allure is timeless. Your visit - unforgettable.
