RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A solar development company is poised to propose building five 20-megawatt solar sites in Vermont.

The Rutland Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1Sq6bs1 ) Ranger Solar plans to present the proposal to the Regional Issues Committee on Tuesday evening in Rutland.

One of the proposed sites, dubbed “Davenport,” would be in Brandon. Plans call for one large array. Documents show the project wouldn’t affect scenery visible from area highways.

The town’s Select Board has voted to pass the plans. Large-scale solar projects only need approval from the state’s Public Service Board - not from local Select Boards or regional planning commissions.

The company filed a 45-day notice for the project earlier this month. A formal application can be submitted to the state for a review after that period.
