Dinse is very proud to announce the completion of a renewable energy project intended to reduce the law firm’s carbon footprint.
We now have a 16.5 kW solar project consisting of 55 300-watt solar panels on the roof of our office building in Burlington. The installation was coordinated by Encore Redevelopment of Burlington, Vermont, and designed and installed by Peck Solar of South Burlington, Vermont. The project was commissioned on April 9, 2014.
The solar array creates a clean renewable energy resource for 25 to 30% of the electrical demand associated with the office equipment at our 30-attorney firm.
Dinse is a Champion member of Vermont Businesses for Social Responsibility (VBSR) and we own our building, so we’ve been excited about a solar energy project for the firm. We serve as counsel to clients financing and developing renewable energy projects in Vermont and New York. We advise clients on the legal aspects of renewable energy projects but a project build-out is beyond our skill set. We’re lawyers, not developers. So we partnered with Chad Farrell and Encore Redevelopment, also members of VBSR, and they brought the project to life within a few months. Their guidance and management made it easy for us.
