Vermont Passes Feed-In Tariff Measure
Green Car Congress
JUNE 4, 2009
Vermont legislators have passed House Bill 446 , also known as the Vermont Energy Act of 2009, which implements a feed-in tariff—an approach allowing owners of small renewable energy facilities to sign long-term contracts for the sale of power produced by their facilities to the larger grid. The long-term contracts provided by such feed-in tariffs can make renewable energy systems a profitable investment, and the guaranteed income can help attract financing for such systems.
