The Vermont Public Utility Commission has appointed two entities to deliver both electricity and heating-and-process-fuel energy efficiency services to residential and business consumers throughout Vermont. One is Efficiency Vermont (operated by the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation), which delivers services in most of the state, and the other is Burlington Electric Department, which delivers services in its service territory. The services offered by these "Energy Efficiency Utilities" help consumers invest now in energy efficiency measures that will save Vermonters money.
The Public Utility Commission has delegated to the Department of Public Service the responsibility to evaluate, measure, and verify services offered and savings claimed by the Energy Efficiency Utilities.
