Solar Rebates & Incentives in Vermont
Considering Solar? Now is the Time to Act!
The Solar Adder, for net-metered PV, will decrease from $0.02 to $0.01 effective July 1 2019. If you are considering solar contact Building Energy now so we can submit your Certificate of Public Good (CPG) before the deadline in order to lock in the higher incentive. This is a ten year adder for all the solar production, so the savings could amount to $1000 or more, depending on system size.
In addition to the incentives listed below, all renewable energy systems are exempt from Vermont sales tax.
