NationalGrid – Renewable Energy Growth Program

National Grid is offering a solar energy incentive program that actually pays customers for the solar energy they produce

Rhode Island – Renewable Energy Growth Program (REG)

In 2014, Act H 7727 created the Renewable Energy Growth (REG) program with the goal to promote installation of grid-connected renewable energy within the load zones of electric distribution companies (EDCs) at a reasonable cost, but for residents, this means Rhode Island FREE SOLAR.


National Grid is offering a solar energy incentive program that actually pays customers for the solar energy they produce. This incentive comes as a bill credit and a cash payment each month to help customers to completely recover the cost of going solar and provide them with an investment return over the life of their system.

What is the RE Growth performance-based incentive (PBI)?

Performance-based incentives, also known as PBIs, pay owners of solar energy systems for the electricity produced by their system. PBIs will pay for the solar energy panel system Rhode Island homeowners have installed on their home and even earn an attractive return on their investment both short term and long term.

This dual benefit of credit and payment is granted to National Grid customers every month for 15 or 20 years, depending on the term of the tariff the customer chooses.

The RE Growth Program was formed pursuant to Chapter 26.6 of Title 39 of the Rhode Island General Laws under the recently enacted Clean Energy Jobs Program Act. Available to eligible renewable distributed generation (DG) projects, the RE Growth Program enables customers to sell their generation output under long-term tariffs at fixed prices. Click here for a summary of the RE Growth Program for Small-Scale Projects and click here for a summary of the RE Growth Program for Solar (Greater than 25 kilowatts), Wind, Hydroelectric, and Anaerobic Digester Projects.
