Northwest Regional Planning Commission (NRPC) adopted a Regional Energy Plan in 2017.  This regional plan supports the implementation of the Vermont Comprehensive Energy Plan and the pursuit of Vermont’s energy and carbon-related goals. NRPC has a standing Regional Energy Committee composed of Regional Commissioners.  The Committee works on projects related to implementing the Regional Energy Plan. NRPC is also involved in the review of proposed renewable electricity energy facilities as an automatic party to all Section 248 proceedings in Franklin and Grand Isle Counties.


NRPC is committed to working with municipalities that pursue local energy planning-related work.  This includes development of municipal enhanced energy plans, development of solar screening ordinances, or any other type of energy-related project. Please contact Taylor Newton at (802) 524-5958 or by email: TNewton at, if you have any questions about NRPC’s Energy Planning program.
