Renewable Energy, such as solar and wind power generation, can play an important role in providing energy in Burrillville and reducing our dependence on fossil fuels. The Town of Burrillville wants to be supportive of renewable energy, but in a way that makes sense for us. 

Please help the Town by answering a few questions about Renewable Energy.
Please also help us by submitting no more than one response per household!

Question Title

* 1. The Town currently allows small-scale solar energy facilities (for example, on roofs or in the yards of a private home or business) anywhere in Burrillville. How do you feel about this policy?

Question Title

* 2. What are your concerns about larger-scale solar energy facilities (for example, a standalone “solar farm”) in Burrillville (pick all that apply)?

Question Title

Question Title

* 4. What are your concerns about wind energy facilities (turbines) in Burrillville (pick all that apply)?

Question Title
