Breckenridge, CO (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

Award-winning timeshare resort development company, Breckenridge Grand Vacations (BGV), has partnered with Clean Energy Collective and the Town of Breckenridge as one of the largest local owners in Xcel Energy’s Solar*Rewards Community Program with a $1 million purchase in Breckenridge’s Ullr and Sol Community Solar Arrays.

The two community solar gardens are named after Ullr, the Norse god of snow, and Sol, the god of sun. The gardens can produce enough energy to offset the power usage and utility cost of almost 80 homes, and allows homeowners and businesses to offset their carbon footprint without having to install panels on their roof or property.

Breckenridge Grand Vacations will own 28% of Ullr and Sol solar arrays located on the Stillson and McCain properties, land owned by the Town of Breckenridge on the north and east sides of Breckenridge. The solar energy will power Breckenridge Grand Vacations’ corporate offices on Main Street as well as the Breck Inn, a boutique hotel the company manages.

BGV will ultimately see a return on the investment, but that was not the company’s primary goal. The Developers want to support the green initiatives of the Town and also set the precedent for other businesses that can make a difference by offsetting their energy consumption.

“This is an awesome project, a no-brainer. We love our community and an investment like this is simply the right thing to do,” said Mike Millisor, Owner and Developer of Breckenridge Grand Vacations.

Brother and Co-Owner Rob Millisor added “Giving back to the community has been part of our corporate mission from the beginning. BGV continuously contributes to the enhancement of the community whenever possible and encourages its employees to give back as well.”

Breckenridge Grand Vacations is the parent company of the award-winning Grand Lodge on Peak 7, Grand Timber Lodge and Gold Point Resort. Since 1985, brothers Mike and Rob Millisor, along with partner Mike Dudick, developers of the Breckenridge Grand Vacations family of resorts, have been creating great vacations for thousands of families. The company has always defined success by how much it positively impacts its owners & guests, employees, investors, and the community. This philosophy has given them the focus for their incredible success in the vacation ownership business in Breckenridge, CO. For more information, visit http://www.breckenridgegrandvacations.com.
