Energy is one of the most significant components of town budgets, especially considering municipal buildings and their water supply, wastewater treatment facilities, and transportation services.  In 2018, EAN, in conjunction the Vermont League of City and Towns (VLCT), Efficiency Vermont, VECAN, and other partners conducted our first annual survey of municipal energy needs and usage.  111 Vermont towns participated in the survey.

The 2019 Municipal Energy Survey will commence in March 2019. For more information, email Rob Fish (rfish@eanvt.org).
