2022 EEC Rates
Save more for less
Efficiency Vermont is committed to advancing clean energy solutions that help you save money while cost-effectively reducing greenhouse gas emissions. 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 promote cleaner, more efficient transportation options.
This year, Efficiency Vermont will continue to maintain a flat budget, while reducing residential EEC rates by 8 percent, and keeping commercial and industrial rates flat for 2022. These new rates will help keep electric bills more affordable while allowing Efficiency Vermont to continue delivering programs and services that help all Vermonters save money and reduce carbon emissions.
Investments Vermonters have made in energy efficiency since 2000 have helped Vermont rank among the top 3 states for energy efficiency efforts, and are expected to reduce more than 12.5 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 4.8 years.
