We designed our BYOD program in partnership with Renewable Energy Vermont. You choose the amount of energy you’d like to enroll, and then get enhanced incentives – the biggest upfront payments of any utility in the country. You’re saving money, and helping all GMP customers save, too!
Work with a company of your choice to buy your battery, and once you have it, you can start the enrollment process by going to the Enroll Now section below.

How it Works
What is an energy peak?
Peaks are the times when there is the greatest power demand on the grid (for example, 5pm on a steamy July evening). Energy peaks not only put a strain on the grid, but energy used then can be more expensive and dirty, and peaks are one of the biggest costs all GMP customers pay. Reducing demand then saves everyone money.
How do I help?
GMP is pioneering the use of stored energy to cut carbon and costs for all customers by cutting the amount of grid power needed during peaks. Joining GMP’s BYOD program adds your stored energy to that of hundreds of other battery and EV charger owners – and GMP’s growing network of stored energy helps offset what’s needed to meet power demand during those critical times.
Benefiting you and Vermont
You save money by joining GMP’s BYOD program. If you enroll a battery for ten years, we’ll give you an upfront payment of $850 per kW of storage enrolled for three hour discharge, $950 per kW for four hour discharge. If you’re retrofitting an existing solar system in one of the areas of the state where extra storage will help the grid most, we’ll give you an extra $100 per kW. Plus, get the benefit of knowing your device is helping to cut carbon emissions and costs for all GMP customers!

Good to Know…
Peaks happen about 5 to 8 times a month and they last an average of 3 to 6 hours. We alert participating customers via smartphone app or other electronic method at least 4 hours in advance.
What if I need that stored energy?
If a weather event is expected to bring outages to your area, we take steps to help you have the reliability you need.
Internet connection required
Devices in the BYOD program have to maintain an internet connection. If yours becomes disconnected, we’ll let you know so you can reconnect it within 30 days.
Upfront payment or monthly credits
GMP incentive is $850 per kW enrolled for three hour discharge, $950 for four hour discharge. Batteries in areas of the state where extra storage is needed most can get an extra payment of $100 per kW enrolled. For residential and small business customers.
