Transitioning to renewables is vital to the future of the skiing industry (and the world of course). Mt. Ashland was the first Early Adopter of the STOKE Snow program when they were benchmarked by STOKE and provided with a Roadmap to Sustainability Report in March 2015. One of the major outcomes of their Roadmap Report was a $65,552 grant and nearly $27,000 in incentives for an 85-panel rooftop solar system that was installed in July 2016. The solar PV system produced 15,356 kWh for energy used on site and 10,514 kWh that was exported back to the grid for a total CO2 emissions savings of 18.2 tons for the 2016/17 winter season. Live performance and historical data from Mt. Ashland’s solar PV system are available on their website.
