Policy and Advocacy


Renewable Energy Vermont and the Vermont State Legislature

Renewable Energy Vermont is the only organization dedicated solely to working toward increased, affordable, and comprehensive renewable energy use in Vermont. We are increasingly finding partners across the political and environmental spectrum that share our mission and want to join us at the Statehouse and in regulatory forums to fight for sustainable energy legislation. One part of our work is to ensure that Vermont enacts policies and legislation that promote renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE).
