BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - Vermont is putting nearly $2 million into clean energy initiatives in Windham County.
Gov. Peter Shumlin says the Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund is putting $1.6 million toward a program to help convert up to 20 schools and municipal buildings in the county to wood pellet heating systems.
The state is also putting $300,000 toward loans to low-income homeowners who want to install solar panels.
The Brattleboro Reformer reports (https://bit.ly/1zl4uAP) that Shumlin made the announcement Wednesday at a Brattleboro school receiving $75,000 to help it transition from an oil burner to a wood pellet heating system.
Shumlin says the investment would create jobs and pave the way for more clean energy in the state.
