Economic Impacts of Energy Efficiency Investments in Vermont


Together with Optimal Energy, Synapse examined the economic impacts of Energy Efficiency Utility investments in Vermont based on the 2012 budgets for energy efficiency spending proposed by the Vermont Department of Public Service. The costs, savings and economic benefits resulting from the efficiency programs were evaluated by sector (residential, commercial, industrial) and modeled over a 20-year study period (2012-2031) using the REMI PI+ economic model.
