Recent PUC Actions
Amendments to PUC procedures governing the use of the Commission's online case management and filing system - ePUC - largely eliminate the requirement that any document filed electronically using ePUC must also be filed by paper with the Commission.
The Commission approved the award of four contracts under Vermont's Standard Offer program on July 20, 2018. The four contracts are in addition to three contracts awarded on June 15. The seven projects range from 90 kW to 22 MW in a diverse range of renewable energy technologies - five solar, one food waste anaerobic digestion, and one small wind.
The PUC opened an investigation into promoting the ownership and use of electric vehicles in Vermont. The goal of the investigation is to identify and eliminate barriers to the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, recognizing that the transportation sector is the largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in Vermont.

Tips for Using ePUC
ePUC is an electronic filing and case management system that you can use to find information about Commission cases and read documents related to those cases. Most types of new cases can be filed in ePUC; subsequent phases of ePUC will go live later in 2018. Information on how to use ePUC, including the current version of the Commission’s Procedures for Electronic Filing Using ePUC, is available.
On August 30, 2018, the Commission issued an order amending the Commission's Procedures for Electronic Filing Using ePUC. The changes include:
- Eliminating the need to file a hard copy of documents filed electronically in ePUC with the exception of documents filed in tariff cases.
- Expanding the use of ePUC to all matters before the Commission with the exception of telecommunications tariff cases.
- Incorporating the requirement previously described in memoranda that lists of prefiled testimony and exhibits for documents previously filed in ePUC include the document number assigned to each document by ePUC.
- Clarifying that a filer must contact the Clerk of the Commission before filing a document in ePUC in a case with a status of "closed."
