Re: Article about the Gore upgrades for this season

Thanks for the link.  The photos is the article make the expansions to the lodges much more tangible.

Didn't know that Gore had invested in solar technology to the point of being able to offset 85% of the electricity needs.  Had only seen that big a number for Jiminy Peak and Mt. Abram.  Jiminy has a wind turbine along with solar panels.

" . . . Gore’s biggest environmental project has definitely been utilizing 14,589 solar panels for energy needs – under this new system, 85% of Gore’s electrical is expected to be offset. This undertaking is the result of two 25-year solar power purchase agreements with Borrego Solar. . . ."

Re: Article about the Gore upgrades for this season

Thanks for the link X, saw it yesterday on Gore's twitter feed. The Saddle Lodge looks like a huge upgrade.

The solar energy isn't produced on site. ORDA is paying to "sponsor" panels somewhere in Washington County I think.
