Standard Offer

The Standard-Offer Program, pursuant to 30 V.S.A. § 8005a, promotes the rapid deployment of renewable generation facilities with a nameplate capacity of 2.2 MW or less. The Standard-Offer Program is implemented through Public Utility Commission (Commission) Orders in Dockets 7523, 7533, 7780, 7873, and 7874.

On March 1, 2013, the Commission established a request for proposal (RFP) mechanism to determine the standard-offer projects that will fill the annual plant capacity available under the program and directed the Standard Offer Facilitator, by April 1 of each year, to issue an RFP to solicit standard-offer projects.

Pursuant to 30 V.S.A. § 8005a(p)(3)(B), the Commission is required to annually establish the standard-offer price for existing hydroelectric  with a nameplate capacity of 5 MW or less.

The Vermont Standard Offer Facilitator maintains a website that includes annual RFPs for the standard-offer program, as well as other information concerning the program.
