Commercial Solar Buyback Program

Get paid to help the planet.

Put your solar energy system to work. Green Mountain Energy’s Solar Buyback Program makes it easy to get the maximum benefit from your system.

Details about our program:

Sell back your excess energy at a fixed price.1
You’ll receive a monthly bill credit2 for the excess energy your system3 supplies to the grid. Excess solar generation happens when your consumption is less than what your system produces. During these times, a buyback plan helps you benefit from your system’s excess production.

Reduce energy costs across all of your buildings.
If you have more than one location, you can apply your excess generation credits to all meters on your account. You’ll be able to use solar from one location to benefit your entire business.

Use one account for multiple systems.
If you have multiple solar energy systems3 under contract with Green Mountain, you will be credited for the excess energy for all the systems on your account.1
