Colchester, VT Heating Fuels & Service
The town of Colchester, Vermont sits on the eastern shores of Lake Champlain in Chittenden County and is the second largest town by population in the Green Mountain State. Chartered in 1763, Colchester has long been a destination of summer tourists looking for a relaxing summer vacation. Since 1981, the town has hosted the Lake Champlain Father’s Day Fishing Derby, attracting thousands of anglers every year.
Founded in September 2000, the Energy Co–op of Vermont, is a local, member–owned cooperative providing heating service and fuel delivery to homeowners in Colchester, VT. The Energy Co–op is proud to call Colchester its home and delivers clean–burning heating oil, installs and maintains super–efficient heating equipment, and supplies made–in–Vermont wood pellets to our Colchester, VT members. In 2012, we launched Co–op Solar, our simple and affordable solar hot water program, as a way to help our members save money, use less oil, and help the environment.
The Energy Co–op of Vermont delivers oil and kerosene heating fuels to Co–op members in Colchester. Whether you heat your home with a furnace or boiler, we can deliver fuel to your home to keep your family warm all winter long. With four oil delivery trucks on the road and our offices based right off Mallett’s Bay on Prim Road, we’ve always got a delivery driver in the vicinity of Colchester, so you can rest assured we’re available to fill your oil tank on any given day. Call us to join the Co–op and schedule a fuel delivery. We’ll help you start saving money today!
Given the volatility and uncertainty of oil prices, it’s nice to have wood pellet stoves available as a home heating option. While most Colchester, VT homeowners heat their homes with natural gas or oil, an increasing number have switched over to wood pellets as a renewable, low–carbon alternative. We can help you make the switch and then supply you with all of the wood pellets you’ll ever need to heat your home. Whether you prefer to pick up your own pellets or have them delivered, the Energy Co–op of Vermont has you covered. Our pellets are:
- High quality, low–ash, and low–moisture,
- Made in Vermont and Quebec, and
- Have high energy content (look for numbers around 8,000 BTU/lb).
Here at the Energy Co–op of Vermont, we not only deliver home heating fuel, we also service furnaces, boilers and pellet stoves for our Colchester members. From routine, annual maintenance on traditional oil furnaces to the installation of efficient new wood pellet stoves, our heating service technicians have the skills and experience needed to tackle any job. We even offer 24/7 emergency service so that you’re never stuck without heat during a nasty cold spell. Call us today for your heating service needs and don’t get left out in the cold!
As energy costs go up and down, it’s not surprising that Colchester homeowners are looking for alternative sources of energy to power their home appliances. Solar hot water is a great example and the Energy Co–op of Vermont is now proud to offer the installation of solar hot water systems to our members through our partnership with Harvestar. With a solar water heater, members can potentially save thousands of dollars on their energy bills. Go to Harvestar’s web site to find out how you can save up to $4,500 on the cost of a new solar water heating system.

I'd never use any company other than Energy Co-Op of Vermont. They are helpful and fair. You can choose a budget plan, which allows your payments to be spread out over the year (and thus enjoy a price cap, and a DROP in your payments should the price go down during the year). They also have a pre-buy and other programs. I've been with them for a few years now.
