Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op
Local Energy for a Sustainable Future
Community Solar Investment Opportunity!
We’re excited to announce that shares in our fourth community solar project, Acorn Energy Solar 4 (AES4) are now available. AES4 will be a 150 kW solar array on the capped former municipal landfill located on Observatory Road in Hinesburg. The project is open to Vermont residents with an electric meter in the Vermont Electric Cooperative (VEC) service territory. These investors will receive the project’s net metered credits on their VEC bills, and ultimately take ownership of the project.

Members can also take advantage of our Co-op Partners Program that offers discounts on a wide range of energy and other products and services.
