The IRA has begun the shift to a clean energy America. What does this mean for Vermonters? A lot.
The Department of Public Service’s effort represents part of a trend as state agencies look to include a broader swath of Vermonters in climate-related public policy decisions.

Renewable energy is already outcompeting fossil fuels, and generating more energy at a much lower environmental cost, proving that it is in fact cheaper to save the climate than destroy it.
