Vivint Solar today announced that its affordable residential solar energy systems are now available to Vermont residents.
Vermont ranks No. 2 on the Union of Concerned Scientists’ Clean Energy Momentum State Ranking, and is noted for leading the country in clean energy jobs per capita and for its carbon reduction target.
Vermont has committed to attain 90 percent of its energy from renewable energy sources by 2050. Vermont residents who wish to install solar energy systems can currently interconnect to the grid under traditional net metering.
“We applaud Vermont for providing a consistent regulatory environment to help spur renewable growth in this tremendous state,” said David Bywater, CEO of Vivint Solar. “We look forward to becoming the residential solar provider of choice for Vermont residents and helping them start on the path to energy independence.”
Through Vivint Solar, residents in Vermont can purchase a system outright or finance the system with monthly payments, either through one of the institutions Vivint Solar has relationships with or their preferred lender. Customers will also be eligible to apply for any applicable utility-sponsored rebates and federal tax credits, the company said.
As part of each sale, Vivint Solar designs and installs the system, allowing customers to enjoy the benefits of affordable, renewable solar energy. Vivint Solar has deep installation expertise, having completed over 100,000 installations throughout the United States.
Vivint Solar now operates in 18 states. The company also plans to relaunch its residential solar energy services in Nevada.
