Green Mountain Power, National Life Group and Green Lantern Capital have collaborated to pilot an innovative way to finance the development of solar projects, producing clean energy and immediate savings on electric bills for customers.

"This is a great way to increase the number of small renewable generation projects throughout the state," said Mary Powell, president and chief executive officer of Green Mountain Power. "We embarked on this project as a way to support our customers who want to lease solar arrays and we are pleased that one of the projects will contribute to our goal of making Rutland the regional solar capital."
