Whether your town has never considered being powered by solar energy or you have explored it in the past, the time to go solar has never been better. Don't miss your opportunity before solar incentives in Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine are reduced.
Maximize Your Solar Savings Before Incentives Change
Solar benefits for your town
A Solar Services Agreement (SSA), also known as a Power Purchase Agreement, allows Municipalities to benefit from federal and state tax incentives that make solar an attractive financial opportunity. In an SSA, a third party owns the arrays (and utilizes the tax incentives) and “sells” the solar power back to the Municipality’s meters at a predetermined discount.

Why Act Now?
In Vermont, for example, the innovative policies and incentives the state has put in place to encourage the growth of more renewable energy have already helped many towns see significant savings in their energy bills by going solar. By law, the monetary incentives that drive the net metering program in Vermont must be reviewed and adjusted accordingly every two years starting in 2018. As a result, it is likely that the highly favorable regulations that we have in place today will be adjusted by the Public Utilities Commission by July 2018. The good news is that there is still time for Vermont businesses to act at the beginning of this year to help your town maximize today’s available monetary incentives.

Immediate electric bill reduction
Stable long-term energy rates
No utility rate hikes
Free long-term maintenance
Property tax payments to municipality by array owners

“I found Norwich Solar to be very knowledgable on renewable energy technologies and all aspects of renewable energy incentives. They enthusiastically provided excellent customer service. They were efficient and timely during the install process and in the submission of incentive documentation. After the installation, they continued to monitor and strived to make sure my system was performing at peak production.“
