Vermont’s electricity rates are more than 43% higher than the national average,4 but increased control of electric bills isn’t the only reason Vermonters are going solar. When you switch to solar, you can also create and store your own clean, renewable energy to protect your home from outages and reduce your carbon emissions. Plus, there are excellent state incentives to help you start your solar journey for less.

As the country’s leading residential solar and energy storage company,5 we work to ensure you can gain energy independence while making the most out of the Green Mountain State’s incentive programs, tax credits, and solar rebates with your new Sunrun system.
