Our Services provides information about VELCO’s transmission services, and the tariffs and business practices that govern our system. The links from this page will take you to our Vermont Transco website. Why the separate site? Because...
- Vermont Transco is our limited liability corporation that owns Vermont's high-voltage electric transmission system (115 kV and above) and provides service to transmission customers.
- VELCO manages the Vermont Transco LLC system, and in that capacity, operates and maintains Vermont's electric transmission system, as it has for more than 55 years.
The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, or FERC, has required that the tariff information be presented on a separate Vermont Transco LLC web portal. Here’s a preview of what you’ll find on the Vermont Transco website and the other links below.

- The VELCO Operating Committee, composed of VELCO, Vermont distribution utilities and the Vermont Public Power Supply Authority representatives, functions like an owners’ committee. The committee assists Vermont Transco in being responsive and accountable to its owner-customers, and reviews and advises on VELCO and VT Transco business practices in areas such as tariff administration, operations management, and strategic developments.
- The Operating Committee link will take you to the public website where the committee manages its meeting material and maintains an archive of its decisions and recommendations.
- The Vermont System Planning Committee (VSPC) is a collaborative process, approved by the Public Service Board, among utilities, public representatives and other stakeholders. Its goals are to facilitate full, fair and timely consideration of cost-effective non-transmission alternatives to new transmission projects, to increase transparency, and to involve the public in decisions about alternatives to building poles and wires, such as distributed generation and energy efficiency.
