The Vermont Small Scale Renewable Energy Incentive Program (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 17th, 2003.

The program offers incentives on renewable energy systems installed by Vermont Solar and Wind Partners . Detailed information on incentives and instructions on how to calculate incentives for a specific system application are contained in the program's incentive reservation forms which can be found here.
Funding for this program has come from the Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF), Central Vermont Public Service (CVPS), Green Mountain Power (GMP) and through U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funds secured by Senator James Jeffords for the VT Public Service Department, Wind Development Program and the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.
There have been several rounds of funding since the initial program started in Summer of 2004 through the present.
In March 2013, an additional $2 million in funding through the Clean Energy Development Fund and The VT Public Service Department was made available to the Vermont Small Scale Renewable Energy Incentive Program.
The Clean Energy Development Fund and the Vermont Small Scale Renewable Energy Incentive Program reserve the right to modify this program as needed.
