Fossil fuels are a strain on Vermonters and a drain on the Vermont economy

Prices for fossil fuels like propane and fuel oil have historically been the highest and most volatile. Weatherizing your home or business can cut these costs by reducing energy use. Even better, switching to renewable heating options offers lower and more stable fuel prices.

Dollars Spent on Fossil Fuels

Because 78% of Vermonters were heating their homes with fossil fuels, Vermonters spent nearly an extra $240 million in 2018 on heating fuel than if we were getting 100% of our heat from renewable sources. Of that, over $185 million left the Vermont economy entirely.
