MONTPELIER, Vt. -  People who have been waiting to install solar panels will finally be able to. Governor Peter Shumlin is signing the net metering bill Tuesday morning.

The bill raises the cap on the net metering program, which lets people install solar and connect their homes to utility companies.

It passed the Vermont House in January and the Senate earlier this month.
