The U.S. Department of Energy and the North Carolina Solar Center are excited to announce that a new, modernized DSIRE is under construction. The new version of DSIRE will offer significant improvements over the current version, including expanded data accessibility and an array of new tools for site users. The new DSIRE site will be available in the summer of 2014. Staff are currently working hard on the new DSIRE and are unfortunately only able to make minimal updates to the DSIRE website at this time. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for using DSIRE.

Summary:

Green Mountain Power, an investor-owned electric utility operating in Vermont, offers a credit to customers with net-metered photovoltaic (PV) systems. In addition to the benefits of net metering, Green Mountain Power customers with a PV system receive a credit of $0.06 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity generated by the system. This credit is available to all customers of Green Mountain Power. The incentive does not have a specified duration or expiration date.

In order to net meter, customers must first apply for and receive a "Net Metering Certificate of Public Good" from the Vermont Public Service Board (PSB). Net metering in Vermont is generally available to systems up to 500 kilowatts (kW) in capacity. An additional meter must be installed to record each system's output. Customers retain ownership of the renewable-energy credits (RECs) associated with the electricity generated by PV systems.

Interested customers should contact customer service at 888-835-4672 for more information.
