Vermont Transco, LLC

eEnergy Vermont

Abstract

The Vermont Transco eEnergy Project involves a collaboration of 20 publicly owned and investor-owned utilities in Vermont as well as the statewide energy efficiency utility, Efficiency Vermont. The project deploys advanced metering infrastructure (AMI), including approximately 300,000 smart meters across the state over 3 years and provides two-way communication between customers and the utilities. The project includes assessment of time-of-use and peak-time rebate programs through statistically rigorous consumer behavior studies that involve consumer Web portals and in-home displays. The project also involves installation of automated voltage regulators and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) equipment at selected substations, enabling better management of the distribution system and reducing operations and maintenance costs.
