2020 Stowe Electric Department Integrated Resource Plan - {here}


Breakdown of Power Generation Resources


 The above chart represents the source of Stowe Electric’s power by the fuel type. However, this chart does not represent the renewability of our electric supply.

 Stowe Electric’s power portfolio was 80% renewable in 2021 and 82% in 2022. Much of our contracted power comes with Renewable Energy Credits (RECs) which are used to track renewability in electric markets. Some were high-value Class I RECs which we sold (e.g. McNeil and Ryegate biomass plants). We then offset those sales by purchasing lower-value Class II RECs which we use to meet the Vermont RES targets. This way, we can continue to increase our renewable power supply while also limiting the impact on cost.


The mission of Stowe Electric Department, a progressive municipal electric utility, is to provide its customers with dedicated, professional service in the most cost effective manner.
