Housing Vermont has worked with Encore on two separate group net-metered solar projects during 2015. We found Encore’s counsel and project development services to be critical to the success of each project, as they took on all development and construction risk, allowing us to focus on our core competence in terms of coordinating project financing. As a result of these projects, Housing Vermont will save thousands of dollars every year on electrical costs for our affordable housing communities, advancing our mission of creating permanently affordable rental housing for Vermonters.
Kathy Beyer, Vice President of Development, Housing Vermont
I was very pleased with the outcome of my investment with Encore, which was used to facilitate the development of a number of important and exciting early solar energy projects in my home state of Vermont. The team at Encore carefully managed my investment and provided me with consistent updates to ensure that I was kept abreast of all developments related to the projects.

We were thrilled with the outcome of our work with Encore on the siting of a solar array on our active dairy farm in Essex Junction, Vermont. Encore’s work resulted in an annual lease payment that provides us with the opportunity to improve our farmstead while preserving topsoil integrity. Farming has always involved land, sunlight, and water to produce value; we are pleased to be able to diversify our farming operations to include renewable electricity generation in addition to forage crops and dairy.

We found Encore’s work in developing our 500kW solar project, the first of its kind in the State of Vermont, to be invaluable. They consistently identified important risk factors, provided robust financial projections, shared critical industry insights, and were available all along the way. Encore’s work ensured that our project resulted in a triple bottom-line success for our investors, our community, and ultimate customer, Middlebury College, which now has an environmentally sustainable electric generation resource to further its carbon reduction and environmental stewardship goals.
