Press Release: PUC Seeks Input to Facilitate the Review of Net-Metering Projects

The Vermont Public Utility Commission opened a proceeding to consider ways to facilitate the review of net-metering systems, including net-metered solar projects. The goal is part of the Commission’s ongoing effort to clarify and streamline the review process wherever possible, while also ensuring that the Commission and all stakeholders can review the potential impacts of a project before the Commission determines whether a project serves the public good. In this proceeding, the Commission is looking at possible revisions to Commission Rule 5.100, which governs the construction and operation of net-metering projects in Vermont.
