Participants are paired with a dedicated energy consultant and receive financial assistance of up to $160,000 per building. Selected participants can expect to:

  • Partner with employees, contractors, design professionals, and their Efficiency Vermont energy consultant to make sure you have a clear and achievable path to 50% energy savings
  • After completing a detailed plan, have up to one year to implement the work
