Renewable Electricity Sites by County (through October 2017)

This map summarizes renewable electricity installations by energy type (e.g., solar PV, wind) for each county. Solar PV is by far the most common type of renewable electricity installation in Vermont, equal to 96% of all sites. Chittenden County has the most installations of any county, over 2,200, equal to about 26% of all installations in Vermont. Data comes from certificates of public good issued by the Vermont Public Service Board and compiled by the Vermont Department of Public Service, VEPP Inc.'s Standard Offer program, and other sources. New sites and corrections are made between each bulk upload. The next update is scheduled for January 2018.

Renewable Electricity Capacity by County (through October 2017)

This map summarizes renewable electricity installation capacity (units are in kW AC) by energy type (e.g., solar PV, wind) for each county. This map does not account for RECs sold or project ownership- it counts up the capacity of installations physically located in Vermont. While solar PV is by far the most common type of renewable electricity installation in Vermont, hydropower constitutes the bulk of installed renewable electricity capacity (equal to 67% of total installed capacity). Caledonia County has the most installed capacity of any county, 428,278 kW, equal to about 38% of total installed capacity in Vermont. Data comes from certificates of public good issued by the Vermont Public Service Board and compiled by the Vermont Department of Public Service, VEPP Inc.'s Standard Offer program, and other sources. New sites and corrections are made between each bulk upload. The next update is scheduled for January 2017.

Renewable Electricity Installations and Capacities by County (through October 2017)

Side-by-side comparisons of installations and installed capacity (units are in kW AC) by county shows that solar photovoltaic systems make up the majority of installations in Vermont, but hydropower makes up the majority of installed capacity.

Renewable Electricity Installations and Capacities by RPC (through October 2017)

Solar PV Sites and Capacity by County (through October 2017)

Orange circles indicate the number of solar photovoltaic sites by county, while the green color polygons scale the installed capacity for each county. Chittenden County has the most solar PV sites and the largest installed capacity. Use the Date Slider to move from June 2016 to November 2016 to March 2017. The next update will be January 2018.

Solar PV Sites and Capacity by System Size by County (through October 2017)

Solar PV installations that range from 1 to 15 kW in size accounted for 91% of solar PV installations (mostly roof-mounted) in Vermont but 25% of installed capacity. Conversely, solar PV installations that are bigger than 2 MW make up less than 1% of solar PV installations (all ground-mounted) but about 30% of installed capacity.
