The Energy Co-op of Vermont was launched in September 2000 and began accepting members for the first time in July 2001. This historic event was the culmination of two years work in which we completed our business plan, established low-income energy bill management programs, researched co-op operations, acquired the Miller Oil Company, and completed other start-up tasks.

Our Business

Oil and wood pellet delivery

Oil and wood pellets: present and future?

Today, we deliver heating oil, kerosene and wood pellets and provide heating system maintenance, repairs and replacement for over 2,000 members. We install super-efficient, cold-climate heat pumps, offer low-cost energy audits and complete home energy upgrades. We own four oil delivery trucks and six service vans and rent office and garage space in Colchester, Vermont. We have weathered dramatic changes in economic conditions and oil markets and are one of the few oil dealers still offering price protection programs for our members.

Our Member Testimonials

  • Committed to Reducing Fossil Fuel Footprint

    My wife and I are committed to reducing our fossil energy footprint, and have been heating our home with wood, trying to use our old oil burner only as backup. Unfortunately, this leaves some cold corners in the house, including our kid's room.

  • Great Experience with Your Service Manager
    I recently had a great experience with Joe, your service manager, and Rick, your subcontractor. They were very thoughtful, helpful and explained all of my heating system options. The Energy Co-op had been referred to me by my neighbor, who is a long time customer.
