The Public Service Board (PSB) of Vermont developed rules regarding utility line extension requests. While the majority of the rules focus on the procedure followed (and associated fees) for the actual line extensions, the PSB also included a provision that requires the electric utilities to provide written information to customers about off-grid electricity generators as an alternative to line extensions. The PSB recognized that in many cases off-grid electricity generators are less expensive than extending the electricity distribution lines, and therefore customers should be made aware of this option.
