Efficiency Vermont works with homeowners on comprehensive energy efficiency projects and offers several incentives. The first step for individual homeowners is to contact Efficiency Vermont or select certified Home Performance with Energy Star contractor and conduct an energy audit. A list of certified contractors is available at the Efficiency Vermont website. The contractor will conduct and review the energy audit and will conduct associated tests.
There are several levels of incentives. If the efficiency upgrades meet the minimum requirement, $250 rebate is available. The minimum requirements include at least a 10% air leakage reduction (as verified by a blower-door test) and installation of health and safety upgrades. Additional incentives, up to the maximum of $2100, are available for additional air sealing improvements, insulation, heat distribution and system improvements, and comprehensive retrofits. Once the improvements are complete and certified improvements made, the contractor will provide the homeowner with rebate application materials.
