Vermont’s Community Solar Program

Date: 22 Apr 2017 | posted in: Energy, Energy Self Reliant States | 0 Facebooktwitterredditmail

Vermont’s Group Net Metering policy requires groups to file with the PSB and other relevant parties. The utility is required to bill customers of the group individually. Net metering is available for systems up to 500 kilowatts for solar and biomass facilities. There is no aggregate cap on net metering as of 2017.

Watch the top state community solar programs progress in our Community Solar Tracker.
