Now Is the Time to Sign Your Own Solar Executive Order

On Day One in the White House, President Joe Biden signed an executive order recommitting our nation to fight global warming under the Paris climate accord.  Now it’s your turn to step up to the plate with your own pledge to combat climate change by installing clean, solar power, the sooner the better!

If you live in Vermont, however, it’s really wise to act NOW to lock in the best net-metering rates.  Think of this as your own executive order to “go solar!”   In yet another perverse policy change showing how out of step the Vermont Public Utility Commission (VPUC) is with the Vermont’s stated renewable energy goals, net-metering rates for solar will decline, for the 5th year in a row, on February 1st.

Taking this solar pledge is really simple.  You just need to submit a Certificate of Public Good (CPG) to the VPUC before January 31st to lock in today’s more favorable rates — an average savings of $1,500.  Submitting this form doesn’t commit you to anything, but it does lock in savings and buy you 12 months to assess and think carefully about how solar energy can work at your home to make an informed decision.

Solaflect Energy can help you complete and submit this CPG form before the Jan. 31 net-metering deadline.  That way, you’re guaranteed to lock in today’s favorable rates, before they are reduced, yet again, starting February 1.  And by submitting the form, you’ll also be sending a loud-and-clear message that you intend on solar being part of your energy future, regardless of the backward steps being taken by the VPUC right now.

Don’t forget that you’ll also be able to take advantage of an extension of the solar tax credits just passed by Congress.  The 26% federal Investment Tax Credit for new residential and small commercial solar installations now will stay in effect for the next two years, before falling to 22% in 2023, and then expiring in 2024.

But, if you live in Vermont, you must act right away to avoid the $1,500 cut in solar net-metering rates.  The clock is ticking!
