About Efficiency Vermont

"In Vermont, we understand the value of stretching our dollars as far as they can go. Described here are the results of our work in 2014, including many of the ways we have helped Vermonters save and the total impact of our work since 2000.

Each year, Efficiency Vermont works to bring the benefits of energy savings to Vermont homes, businesses, and communities. Today, thousands of Vermonters are enjoying homes that are more affordable, comfortable, and healthy. Businesses, big and small, have reduced operating expenses and invested in their growth. And communities are making their municipal budgets go further thanks to cost saving measures like LED street lights or wastewater plant improvements.

At the statewide level, this adds up to even more savings. By using less energy, we defray or avoid costly investments in new transmission lines.

That’s what we do.

At Efficiency Vermont we advance sustainable energy solutions for all Vermonters. I’d like to invite you to work with us and see how we can help."

The 2014 data presented herein are based on Efficiency Vermont's estimates of preliminary savings as claimed by the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, the implementor of Efficiency Vermont. Each spring, the savings are subject to an in-depth verification process conducted by the Vermont Public Service Department. A written report and recommendation go to the Vermont Public Service Board, which makes a final certification of the savings that can be claimed. Data from all energy efficiency programs in Vermont since 2000 is used to calculate the percentage of electric supply needs. In this flyer, data used from 2000 through 2013 were drawn from the final, verified Efficiency Vermont Annual Reports for those years. Across thirteen years, the average adjustment between the preliminary energy savings claimed by Efficiency Vermont and the final certified savings amount has been a reduction of 6.0%. The estimate of total savings from Efficiency Vermont’s work since 2000 includes lifetime savings on all measures installed between the years of 2000-2014. The return on investment estimate is based on the investment from Efficiency Vermont and customer investments and the return in energy, maintenance, and water savings. The estimate of 2014 continued savings includes lifetime savings on all measures installed in 2014.
