Sell back excess energy from your solar or wind energy system

With our Renewable Rewards buy-back program, you can maximize the return on your investment in distributed generation like solar or wind energy systems by receiving credit for any excess energy your system exports to the grid. We will give you a bill credit for 100% of your system’s outflow to the electric grid.

  2. Enroll in our Renewable Rewards buy-back program
  3. Receive credit for all of the energy you produce, including any excess energy you export to the electricity grid.* First credit will appear during the first full billing period (up to 60 days) after you’ve enrolled in Renewable Rewards AND your solar array is connected to the grid and producing energy.

Residential customers: The credit per kWh for the surplus energy you generate will be the same per kWh rate we charge for the Renewable Rewards electricity product. We will supplement the energy you produce with 100% wind energy from the grid. Learn more about net metering in this blog post. To enroll in Renewable Rewards, new Green Mountain residential customers can enroll using the above form.  Existing residential customers may call 866-301-3120.

Business customers: We can help you monetize your investment in a grid connected renewable energy system (maximum capacity of 50 kW), such as photovoltaic and wind systems that directly serve your facilities’ power needs. We will credit your monthly invoice equal to the excess energy you generate multiplied by the contracted energy rate on your Green Mountain Energy® electricity contract.
