Net-metering is the process of measuring the difference between the electricity supplied to a customer by their utility and the electricity fed back to the utility by a customer’s electric generation system (such as solar panels) during the customer's billing period. In Vermont, customers in the same utility service territory are allowed to form "groups" to share in the output of a net-metering system.

The Public Utility Commission regulates the construction and operation of net-metering systems. The Commission also reviews and approves utility net-metering tariffs, which govern the terms and conditions of net-metering service.
