Vermont Law Requires Green Pricing

March 2008 - On March 19, Vermont Governor Jim Douglas signed into law a bill (S209) requiring all utilities in the state, including municipal and cooperative utilities, to offer a renewable energy option to their consumers. To comply, utilities can offer renewable energy purchase options or programs through which consumers can make voluntary contributions to the Vermont clean energy development fund. The law specifically states that: "such renewable energy pricing programs may include, but are not limited to, tariffs, standard special contracts, or other arrangements whose purpose is to increase the company's reliance on, or the customer's support of, renewable sources of energy."
