Service Area Maps
Vermont Gas has prepared maps showing the areas of the state in which it provides service.
Utility tariffs specify the rates charged to customers and the terms and conditions under which the utility provides service. Vermont law specifies the process a utility must follow to change its tariffs.
The PUC has official paper versions of current utility tariffs available for review in its offices during normal business hours. Vermont Gas Systems, Inc. maintains a Rates and Billing page on its website; however, the Commission does not verify the accuracy of the tariffs or rate summaries posted.
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.
