Staying Up-to-Date on the Comprehensive Energy Plan
Monday, August 15 - 12:00 p.m. - The Vermont Department of Public Service (DPS) is revitalizing the statewide Comprehensive Energy Plan (CEP). The plan addresses all aspects of Vermont's energy future for electricity, thermal energy (related to heating and industrial processes) and transporation.
Governor Shumlin understands that Vermonters must come together to find local, clean, low-emission renewable energy to reduce our environmental impact and spur the local economy, which is why the Governor has asked DPS Commissioner Elizabeth Miller to have the plan on his desk by October 2011.
The Plan will provide a significant piece of the roadmap to protecting our environment, guide Vermont toward a secure and sustainable energy future, and help to create a clean energy economy that grows jobs here in Vermont.
With the help of Vermonters public comments, Governor Shumlin is confident that this Plan will continue to make Vermont a leader in renewable energy and energy efficiency innovation in the United States.
Please, stay involved and up-to-date with the CEP Plan. You can visit the Vermont Comprehensive Energy Plan site to see a working draft of the Comprehensive Energy Plan, utilizing the last Public Review Draft from 2008 and updates to March 2011. Learn how to submit your comments and feedback as we work through this together.
