VPIRG Testimony: Improving Vermont’s Solar Law

Vermont now ranks 9th in the country for solar installations per capita and we just tripled the amount of residential renewables in two years.

That’s great news. But in order to ensure the state’s “net metering” law—which lets Vermonters go renewable, compensates you for the renewable power you produce and lets you keep “rollover” credit for generating extra energy to apply towards future bills—can keep up with Vermonters’ interest in going solar, we’re working to update the law this year.
