Proposed Changes to Vermont’s Net-Metering Rule Would Slow Renewable Deployment

by | May 6, 2022

The Public Utility Commission is proposing revisions to Vermont net’s-metering rule, Rule 5.100, that would make building net-metered projects more difficult by unnecessarily restricting the sites where they can be developed and blocking them from participating in new markets. Net-metering has been one of the most successful programs in Vermont for promoting solar development and is already threatened by a proposal to reduce the compensation rates for the sixth time in six years.

REV believes the current draft rule unnecessarily restricts net-metering and will harm the state’s ability to meet its climate and energy goals while also making it harder for low and moderate-income Vermonters to participate in the net-metering program.
