Net Metering Cap Leaves Community Solar Projects Across The State In Limbo | Vermont Public Radio

Solar arrays have sprouted across the Vermont landscape over the past decade, but policy makers weren't ready for one consequence of the solar boom: reaching the cap on new solar projects.

Last fall, Vermont’s largest utility, Green Mountain Power, hit the cap for how many mid-sized and larger solar projects it can hook up to the grid. That means many that were planned just won't get built this year.

At one farm in South Royalton, the limit has stymied the community’s plan for a shared solar array.
