Who is eligible to take advantage of GMP solar?
Any Green Mountain Power customer with metered service may participate.
GMP solar is a net metering program that credits customers who generate solar energy. The amount a customer receives is based on the value of the energy that GMP charges the customer, there are additional adjusting values that you could be entitled to. See Rule 5.100.
If you already have solar installed at your home, you will need to have an additional meter installed to directly measure the output of solar generation. Your solar installation will have to comply with these GMP requirements.
If you are a GMP customer who is interested in installing solar at your home, you must apply for a Net Metering Certificate of Public Good from the Vermont Public Service Board. Learn more about Interconnecting Customer Generation.
As mentioned above, an additional meter will need to be installed to directly measure the output of the solar generation.
