Fuel Delivery in Vermont

According to the latest census data, Vermonters heat their homes with heating oil (55%), natural gas (14%), propane (15%), wood (10%) and electricity (4%). Many Vermonters use more than one fuel, burning more cordwood and wood pellets, for example, when oil or propane prices rise.

Heating Fuel Prices and Savings With the Energy Co-op of Vermont

The Vermont Department of Public Service issues a monthly report on VT heating fuel prices. The report compares prices for the most commonly used Vermont heating fuels: oil, kerosene, propane, natural gas, cordwood, wood pellets, coal and electricity. The Energy Co-op of Vermont’s heating oil prices are usually below Vermont averages.

No-one likes big winter energy bills that often arrive right after the holidays. That’s why more than 700 Energy Co-op of Vermont members sign up for our Smart Choice and Easy Pay plans to spread their oil kerosene and wood pellet payments over eight to eleven months.
