MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Public Service Department is offering the public a free guide to going solar.

Commissioner Chris Recchia says Vermont has seen tremendous growth in residential and community-scale solar with over 6,000 installed net-metered solar projects across the state.

The department says the booklet “A Vermonter’s Guide to Residential Solar” will help residents decide if solar makes sense for them and if so how to go about it.

It covers reasons Vermonters are choosing solar; the physical components of a PV system; ways to finance a solar system; solar savings and incentives; and choosing a contractor.

Publication of the guide was funded through a U.S. Department of Energy initiative.

The guide can be downloaded from the department’s website by selecting renewables, and then, under the headline of resources, selecting solar.
