The eEnergy Vermont Utilities are one of nine Smart Grid Investment Grant recipients nationwide that conducted research into the effectiveness of dynamic electric utility rates and information feedback technologies in changing utility customer behavior. Two of these utilities, the Vermont Electric Cooperative and Central Vermont Public Service, designed Consumer Behavior Studies to test specific electric rate structures and technology solutions within their service territories. This report addresses only the VEC study, and describes the experience that has been gained by VEC and its implementation partner, Efficiency Vermont, during the second year of the study. An interim evaluation report is available for the first year of the project on smartgrid.gov.
