Vermont Efficiency Efforts to Include Heating, Transport (Ind. Report)
Efficiency Vermont
Date: 2020-02-10
In Montpelier, the Vermont Senate Natural Resources and Energy Committee is reporting approval of a bill that would allow the state's electric efficiency utilities -- Efficiency Vermont and Burlington Electric Department -- to spend up to $2 million over the next three years on heating and transportation efficiency projects. Previous projects included home weatherization which saved Vermonters an estimated $1.7 billion from 2000-2018. Transportation and heating account for close to 80 pct of Vermonters' energy costs as well as contribute to climate change pollution.

Vermont legislators set a goal to weatherize 80,000 homes by 2020 but as of 2018, only 27,186 homes had been weatherized, according to a 2020 energy report from the state Department of Public Service.
