BRATTLEBORO, Vt. (AP) - A firm has received a certificate of public good to build a 500-kilowatt solar facility next to a 2.2 megawatt facility in Vermont.

The Brattleboro Reformer reports (https://bit.ly/1OrsTQq) Winstanley Enterprises received the certificate on Monday.

The project calls for more than 2,000 solar photovoltaic panels to be mounted in a field in Brattleboro. Vice President Eric Nelson says about five acres of the available 20 acres will be used for the net-metered facility.

The project was approved by the Public Service Board.

Nelson says an installation company has not yet been selected.

Construction is expected to last up to four months.

The newspaper reports Winstanley hopes to have a sheep pasture on the solar field site from May through October to control vegetation growth.
