THETFORD, Vt. (AP) - Some towns in Vermont and New Hampshire are facing a June 30 deadline to switch their homes to solar power.

The “Solarize Upper Valley” project involves the Vermont communities of Thetford and Strafford, and the New Hampshire towns of Cornish and Lyme. About 50 homes have switched over to sun power.

Vermont Public Radio reports (https://bit.ly/1q3yyxB) the project is managed by a nonprofit called “Vital Communities,” which pre-selects installers willing to give group discounts.

There are similar projects in Waterbury and some towns in Windham County.
