HED is actively evaluating a 1 Megawatt Solar PV power generating facility in Hardwick. 

Financial evaluation is ongoing to determine costs, and how the project could compliment HED’s power portfolio.  The project will be targeted to help our continuous effort to stabilize rates, and position HED for Vermont’s new Energy Innovation Program.  This is in regard to renewable energy requirements through the year 2032.  The project would generate approximately 3% of our customer’s annual energy needs.  More to come on this in the weeks ahead!

If you are interested in executing a Net Metering project please be aware that HED has allocated 95% of our cap…so we only have room for a few more.  Once reached HED will no longer be accepting Net Metering projects, and will be waiting for the legislature to revamp Net Metering as is planned for 2017.
