In Putney, a double solar tax is not warranted

PUTNEY — Article 14 on the 2022 Putney ballot asks voters to vote yea or nay on taxing solar farm output.

The Town Energy Committee has suggested voting no, after full consideration of the wording of the proposal on the ballot (which had already gone to press) - the reason being that the tax is contrary to the Town's support of alternative energy.

There are several community solar farms in Putney, and, with the state already taxing them, the local panel owners believe a double tax is not warranted.

As an owner of 10 panels in a Putney community solar farm, I agree.
