Efficiency and Conservation

Efficiency and conservation saves money, stops waste, reduces pollution and creates jobs. That’s why it is one of VNRC’s top energy priorities. We work to promote policies, programs and projects that reduce the energy needed to heat homes and businesses or the electricity needed to power our lives as the most cost-effective, climate-friendly energy solution possible.

We work in partnership with stakeholders such as Efficiency Vermont  — the state’s acclaimed energy efficiency utility — to help communities undertake energy efficiency projects and promote needed investments in efficiency and conservation. We also work closely with community groups, including energy committees, to help them identify, develop and implement energy-saving solutions.
