Financing for Vermont Businesses and Farms

Seth Gardner

Seth Gardner is an innovative organic dairy farmer who milks over 200 cows on his farm in East Montpelier.

Seth continually searches for ways to make his farm more profitable. To meet his growing electrical power needs and to stabilize his energy costs, Seth purchased a 99.84 kW photovoltaic Solar array. The power generated from this array more than meets the summer needs of the farm, and builds credits to offset some of the costs during the darker months of late fall and early winter.
