What Vermont lawmakers did and didn’t do this legislation session.
Bomb Cyclone Prep
The 2018 winter introduced us to the "bomb cyclone,” consecutive days of frigid temperatures that strained the supply chain — and our nerves. During times of high demand and high stress, company communications are critical. When winter gets tough — and when it matters most— know the right thing to say in person, over the phone, and online.
Featuring Michael Meath with Strategic Communications
Find ways to lower operating expenses by increasing average fuel drops. Vermont heating fuel marketers reported that K-factor delivery calculations were complicated this winter by significant temperature swings and the use of auxiliary heat sources. This presentation will look into the analytics of delivery calculations and how to become more efficient without risking more run-outs.
Featuring Danny Silverman of Angus Energy
Find out what’s happening with the Crane Rule, supply lines, CP-111, and the enforcement of jurisdictional propane accounts in Vermont.
Featuring Leslie Anderson of PGANE and GC Morris of Vermont Public Service Department
Learn about the switch to ultra-low sulfur oilheat on July 1 along with an update on the Vermont’s tank regulations and the Vermont Fuel Tank Rebate Program. Take home sample marketing materials that promote the low sulfur switch and convinces customers upgrade their oilheat tank.
Featuring Bob Hedden with Hedden Company, Matt Moran with the Vermont DEC, and Barry Aruda with Advanced Fuel Solutions
Find out about the Vermont Fuel Heating Service Technician Pilot Program and how VFDA is working with the Department of Labor to move Vermont high school students and the unemployed into heat tech jobs.
