What is the BYOD Program?

By joining the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program, you can save money while helping to reduce carbon emissions and costs for all Green Mountain Power (GMP) customers. When you agree to share energy from your FranklinWH batteries during high energy use times, GMP will pay you an up-front rebate. By joining the BYOD program, you are adding resiliency at home, and helping your neighbors by sharing energy through GMP.

Receive up to $10,500 toward your home battery purchase when you enroll and agree to share your stored energy with GMP.

How does GMP BYOD work?

BYOD means you are helping your neighbors by sharing the clean power of your home device with your community during the peak-demand periods, when energy is most expensive and carbon intensive. Your participation cuts costs and carbon for Vermonters.

Receive a rebate for the
