Vt. has new law encouraging small power generation

EAST MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- A new Vermont law makes it easier for small power producers to sell any excess electricity they produce.

The "net metering" law signed Tuesday by Gov. Peter Shumlin in East Montpelier increases the amount of power from small, renewable sources such as wind or solar, can send on to the electric grid from 4 percent of a utility's peak demand to 15 percent.

The new law also includes lowering the net metering credit on larger projects, expands a fast-track solar project permitting process and creates a framework to redesign the law for 2017 and beyond when federal tax credits may expire.

Shumlin signed the bill into law in front of an East Montpelier solar array on a local dairy farm.
