2021 EEC Rates

Save more for less

Efficiency Vermont is committed to advancing clean energy solutions that help you save money. The Energy Efficiency Charge (EEC) that appears on your electric bill each month helps us do that—enabling us to reduce the cost of efficient technologies, build our clean energy workforce, help businesses reduce operating costs, and do so much more.

Knowing that many Vermonters face significant financial burdens in this challenging time, Efficiency Vermont proposed and received approval from the Public Utility Commission for a $7 million budget reduction for 2021. This allows us to avoid any increase to the EEC, keeping rates the same for 2021. Efficiency Vermont will continue to partner with Vermonters to help you invest in energy efficiency solutions that can save money, help families be more resilient, and keep us comfortable while we stay home and stay safe. Learn more about how Efficiency Vermont is supporting Vermonters in these times.

Investments Vermonters have made in energy efficiency since 2000 are expected to reduce over 12 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions over the life of those investments. That’s like taking all of Vermont’s cars off the road for 4.6 years.
