What is the Vermont Small Scale Renewable Energy Incentive Program (SSREIP)?

The Vermont Small Scale Renewable Energy Incentive Program (SSREIP) is the state incentive program designed and funded by the Clean Energy Development Fund, and is intended to help Vermonters install renewable energy systems in their homes and businesses. We have provided incentives for solar electric, wind, and micro-hydro systems in the past, and currently provide incentives for advanced wood heating and solar water heating. The SSREIP was originally established pursuant to Renewable Energy Legislation passed by the Vermont State Legislature during the spring of 2003 and signed into law by Governor Douglas on June 17, 2003. The Renewable Energy Resource Center (RERC), a project of the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, administers the incentive program and provides consumer education and support services relative to the program.
