Efficiency Vermont Programs Receive National Honor

Burlington, VT

The American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE) has named three Efficiency Vermont programs as being among the most outstanding in the nation, based on their effectiveness and innovation in helping customers achieve greater levels of energy efficiency.

“These programs are delivering energy savings that help customers reduce their costs and maintain comfortable, durable, safe homes and productive businesses,” said Rachel Gold, ACEEE’s Utilities Program senior manager. “They also make an important environmental contribution by reducing pollution from the use of fossil fuels.”

Efficiency Vermont was recognized for its Low-Income Electrical Efficiency Program, High-Performance Home Program, and Heat Pump Water Heater Program. ACEEE, a nonprofit research group based in Washington, D.C, honored 53 programs nationally with this award.

“We are honored to be nationally recognized for these programs,” said Rebecca Foster, Director of Efficiency Vermont. “We partner with an impressive network of Vermont's other utilities, efficient equipment suppliers, and service providers to deploy these programs across the state. This recognition by ACEEE tells us we’re on the right track to help Vermont’s residents and businesses reduce their energy costs, while at the same time making their homes and buildings more comfortable, safer, and healthier.”
