Through the Renewable Rewards® Buy-Back Program, Green Mountain customers who install qualifying renewable energy generation facilities at their homes can receive credit for any excess energy they export to the electricity grid. For the first 500 kWh per month of surplus power, the credit will be the same per kWh rate that Green Mountain charges for the Renewable Rewards electricity product. For any excess energy beyond 500 kWh per month, the buy-back rate will be reduced by 50 percent. The credit is exclusive of any monthly service charge, TDSP advanced meter surcharge, applicable taxes and fees or other charges.
To participate in this program you must meet the following criteria:
1. You must have an Interconnection Agreement in place with your TDSP. For contact information for your TDSP, click here.
2. You must have a smart meter installed by your TDSP that separately measures the in-flow and out-flow of electricity to and from your home. (Your TDSP may charge for this meter, which would be passed through to you on your Green Mountain Energy electricity bill.)
3. You must be enrolled on Green Mountain’s Renewable Rewards product.
The first two steps require that you work directly with your TDSP to ensure that your system is safely connected to the grid and that your energy consumption and excess production are being accurately measured, accounted for, and sent to Green Mountain with your monthly meter reads.
