Net Metering

Net metering is a program instituted by Vermont law that allows members to connect small-scale, renewable energy systems to the grid and receive credit on their electric bills for the power that system generates. The most common type of net metering is for solar, but wind, hydro and methane can also be connected under the net metering program.

Note: The rules for net metering in Vermont changed on 1/1/2017. The information below pertains to applications on or after 1/1/2017. For information on net metering systems installed prior to 2017, please contact 1-800-832-2667.
