If you are planning on installing a grid-tied PV system in Vermont, I strongly recommend submitting the application for a Certificate of Public Good (CPG). It has taken the state well over 30 days to approve the last three applications I submitted – actually, only one of four I have submitted have been approved. Two of these were submitted at the end of May, and are still pending. The one that was approved was submitted last year, and took about two months for approval. The last one has been under review for three weeks.
I understand that, as of January 2012, the state will have 10 days to process applications, but in the meantime, it is taking a long time. And, if there is no CPG, there is no installation. So, start your application today, and let us know how we can help.
