The Public Service Department  prepares a variety of plans, reports and informational materials for use by consumers, utilities, and others.

 

State Plans

The Public Service Department is required by Vermont Statutes to produce three state plans:

Comprehensive Energy Plan

The Comprehensive Energy Plan addresses all energy resources and covers a period of 20 years, with updates at least every five years.

Electric Plan

The Vermont Electric Plan is state government's public policy document for Vermont's electric utility industry.

Telecommunications Plan

The Public Service Department, in coordination with the Department of Innovation and Information and the Agency of Commerce, produces a seven-year plan that serves as the basis for state telecommunications policy.

 

Current plans are available for download from the links provided (above). For past plans or paper versions of current plans contact the Public Service Department.

 

Total Energy Study

The Public Service Department is undertaking a “Total Energy Study” to identify the most promising policy and technology pathways to employ in order to reach Vermont’s energy and greenhouse gas goals. This study is required by Act 170 of 2012, as modified by the legislature during the most recent session. Go to the Total Energy Study page to learn more about up-coming events, public comment periods, and published documents.

 

Vermont Fuel Price Report

Published monthly, the Vermont Fuel Price Report is a summary of the Public Service Department’s survey of Vermont fuel suppliers. The report highlights changes in recent and historical prices, comparison of cost of different fuels and a summary of the national supply and price status released by the U.S. Department of Energy, Energy Information Agency. Copies of the current and historical reports are available electronically in PDF format. The Vermont Fuel Price Report is available electronically in PDF format.

 

Biennial Report

Under 30 V.S.A. §24, the Public Service Department is required to prepare a Biennial Report for the General Assembly. For information about the most recent biennial report, see the Vermont Public Service Department Biennial Report, July 1, 2006 - June 30, 2010 (July 2011). This combined Biennial Report describes highlights of the Department's activities covering two biennia - July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2008; and July 1, 2008 through June 30, 2010.

  

Utility Facts Report

The 2013 publication now includes a section on total energy use and consumption, a section devoted to electric and thermal efficiency, and a section profiling the regulated utility sector. These additions will join existing sections devoted to electricity, natural gas, telecommunications, and water. Each section includes data tables, charts, and references that we hope will provide a common set of energy and telecommunication information.
