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 less than 15 kilowatts (kW) receive a credit of $0.053 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) of electricity generated by the system. PV installations larger than 15 kW receive a credit of $0.043 per kWh. 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. 

Interested customers should contact customer service at 1-888-835-4672 for more information.
