Earlier this year, the Department of Public Service worked with consulting firm MassINC Polling Group to conduct a statewide survey and focus groups with a random sample of Vermonters to better understand their priorities and preferences for renewable electricity in the state. This effort began in early June with a statewide survey of over 700 Vermonters which was followed with 11 focus groups (6 in-person, 5 virtual) with a subset of people who took that survey to dig deeper on topics of renewable and clean electricity.
The report, titled "Vermont Weighs In" was released on October 3rd and offers key takeaways on Vermonter's priorities around and preferred sources of electricity, as well as their awareness of current electricity sources and policies.
On November 8th, please join us and MassInc Polling Group from 12:00pm-1:00pm for a webinar presentation of the report.

This effort was part of the Department's ongoing process to review the state’s current policies and programs on renewable electricity. The project sought to implement Phase 2 of the PSD’s Public Engagement Plan for this review, issued in December 2022. MassINC Polling Group (MPG) conducted the research on behalf of PSD.
