Green Peak Solar is a Vermont-based solar company that focuses on developing large-scale solar energy systems for utilities, towns, school districts, businesses, and manufacturers in Vermont and New England. We are continuously innovating, and are known for finding the best possible financing, project locations, and design specifications for our clients. This allows us to offer our clients the greatest possible discounts on their energy bills.

Green Peak Solar was founded in 2012 by its current principals, Chris Cadwell and Nathaniel Vandal. Both Vermonters, Chris and Nathaniel brought their skills and backgrounds in renewable energy development on the west coast back to their home state, and immediately saw success in the SPEED Standard Offer Request for Proposal (RFP) set up by the Vermont Public Service Board. Green Peak Solar was awarded a SPEED Standard Offer contract for its solar energy systems in the 2013 and 2014 RFPs, beating out more than 50 MW of other project proposals by over twenty competitors.  These projects are currently under development.

It is Green Peak Solar’s commitment to finding the lowest possible cost for the generation of clean solar energy that has allowed us to experience this success. Currently, we are bringing our efficient and cost-effective approach to solar energy development to towns, schools, and businesses in the region. We manage and oversee all aspects of the projects that we develop, including their siting, design, permitting, financing, construction, and operation.
