Resorts encouraged to green up snowmakingTimes Argus, September 1, 2014
It could be called the snowmaking version of Cash for Clunkers. Only in this case, the clunkers are old, energy-guzzling snow guns.
Fifteen of the state’s ski resorts have partnered with Efficiency Vermont in the Great Snow Gun Roundup — a program to scrap 1,800 of the old snow guns for 2,300 new energy-efficient models for the upcoming ski season.
Efficiency Vermont is providing $5 million in grants to offset the $15 million cost to purchase the new snow guns, said Efficiency Vermont spokesman George Twigg.
