Vermont Certificate of Public Good (8-VT-c)

In Vermont, energy transmission projects must go through a site-specific environmental, economic and social impacts review process. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has jurisdiction over most hydroelectric projects, including primary transmission lines required for the project. However, a developer may need to obtain a Certificate of Public Good (CPG), from the Public Service Board (Board) for a transmission line extension project, or a group net-metered hydroelectric power system interconnection. 30 V.S.A. § 248 et seq.


The Board will conduct a CPG review pursuant to 30 V.S.A. § 248 et seq. The Board must find that the project promotes the general good of the state in order to grant a CPG. 30 V.S.A. § 248 et seq.


Certificate of Public Good Process

8-VT-c.1 — Certificate of Public Good Process

The developer must obtain a Certificate of Public Good (CPG) from the Public Service Board (Board) for projects not covered by a Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) license or exemption, including transmission line extension projects and group net-metered hydroelectric power system interconnections. 30 V.S.A. § 248 et seq. The CPG review process for hydroelectric generation projects is the same for transmission projects. For more information, see:
