There currently is one natural gas company authorized to operate in Vermont -- Vermont Gas Systems, Inc. (Vermont Gas).
Vermont Gas provides natural gas to over 50,000 families, businesses, and institutions in Chittenden and Franklin counties. Vermont Gas is working to expand its service territory to Addison County as part of its Addison County Natural Gas project approved by the Commission in Docket 7970.
Vermont’s natural gas is transported from Canada via the TransCanada Pipeline and enters at Highgate, on the Vermont/Canada border. Vermont Gas currently serves customers through a network of more than 750 miles of underground transmission and distribution lines.
Service Area Maps
Vermont Gas has prepared maps showing the areas of the state in which it provides service.
A utility’s tariffs state the rates the utility charges its customers, as well as the terms and conditions under which the utility provides service. Vermont law specifies the process a utility must follow to change its tariffs. The official paper version of a utility’s current tariffs is available for review in the Public Utility Commission offices during normal business hours. As a convenience, Vermont Gas has posted summaries of its rates and an electronic version of portions of its tariffs on its website. However, the Commission does not verify the accuracy of the tariffs or rate summaries posted on Vermont Gas’ website.
Natural Gas Utility Annual Reports
Vermont law requires each natural gas utility to file an annual report with the Department of Public Service (“the Department”). These reports include a variety of utility financial and operational data and are available from the Department.
