WINDSOR, Vt. (AP) - Green Mountain Power is delaying a solar project that’s drawn opposition from Vermonters concerned over its potential environmental effects.

Windsor Town Manager Tom Marsh tells the Valley News (https://bit.ly/1JB94Qa ) the company told him the project is on hold as state agencies try to iron out plans for the land.

GMP spokeswoman Dororthy Schnure says the utility “respects and listens to the community” and will work with the town and state in moving forward after issues are resolved.

More than 50 residents turned out against the plan at a public forum last month. They’re concerned it would be an eyesore.

The utility and groSolar want to construct a 4.25 megawatt array on 35 acres near the Southeast State Correctional Facility. The panels could power up to 1,200 homes.
