Our 2023 policy asks are the following:

  • Significantly increase the amount of renewable energy we produce in our state — especially community solar and networked geothermal 
  • Keep electricity rates and heat affordable for low and middle-income Vermonters and require landlords to weatherize rental units
  • Require that the energy we use in Vermont is low-emitting and just and supports the health of agricultural lands and biodiversity -  Large hydropower*, biofuels, biomass, renewable natural gas, and hydrogen harm people and the planet. They have no place in Vermont’s energy future. We need to begin the transition NOW to a renewable energy future relying on conservation, energy-efficiency, and on local and regional wind and solar power.
  • Create an energy future that benefits working people and the most vulnerable communities. 

 

* No new hydro-Quebec or other large hydro beyond the existing contract which are slated to end in 2036.
