"Acorn Energy Solar One (AESO) was our first large-scale (148-kilowatt) community energy project in Addison County. Before deciding whether or not to hire Encore Redevelopment to assist us, we reviewed their accomplishments and then brought them on board. We're glad we did. Encore had already established itself as a leader in community scale renewable energy with its previous projects, and they were able to build on that experience to strengthen the AESO team. The folks at Encore leveraged their connections in the renewable energy industry to help us select the best installer at the best price. Encore's thorough knowledge of the industry, including permitting, financial incentives, development, and project management experience helped us to keep the project on track. It was a pleasure to work with Chad and all the folks at Encore."
— Greg Pahl; President of the Board and Co-founder, Acorn Renewable Energy Co-op
"We worked with Chad and the folks at Encore Redevelopment last year during a process of discovery about the potential of a solar array on our roof. Encore was instrumental in both explaining the benefits of an investment in renewable energy for Select Design, and after we made the decision to move forward, helping us execute the project to support the vision and financial goals of our business. Encore's turn-key project development and management approach allowed us to capitalize on this vision while allowing us to focus on our day to day business. Furthermore, Encore continued to advocate on our behalf after the project was
constructed to ensure that all financial incentives were secured - resulting in a significant cost savings to the project."
— Kevin Owens; CEO and Co-founder, Select Design
"Encore Redevelopment has enlightened me to the emerging world of clean, renewable energy and the many benefits of incorporating its development into the restoration of buildings. Renewable energy development presents a new opportunity for additional business activity and investment to support the growth of my company, Farrington Construction, and other companies I am associated with in the rapidly changing 21st century economy."
— David Farrington; Farrington Construction
"I look forward to continuing to work with Encore Redevelopment to help place young employees while spreading the word about the benefits of hiring interns and new graduates. Encore’s core values of community engagement and service is helping to enhance the sustainability of the business sector in Vermont."

"Matrix Environmental has worked with Chad Farrell and Encore Redevelopment for over five years on complex remediation projects. Encore has a unique ability to articulate the vision of the project to all stakeholders including the responsible party, land owner, developer, regulatory agencies, remediation contractor and community groups. Providing a clear vision along with developing working partnerships that benefit all parties has placed Encore on the leading edge and demonstrated that environmental remediation is part of the development process and not a barrier to site utilization."
— Sean R. Carter; President, Matrix Environmental Technologies Inc.
