COVID-19 Update:

To protect the health of our staff and our customers, Efficiency Vermont offices are closed to the public. We have cautiously begun scheduling project related site visits when required. You can find more information on our safety protocols here.

We know that you need support in reducing energy costs now more than ever, and we will continue to launch new offers and programs over the course of the summer. In the mean time, our customer support team is available to help you remotely. Contact us at (888) 921-5990 or

Direct Community Partnerships

In 2020, Efficiency Vermont is on the ground in Barre City, Irasburg/Barton/Orleans, Johnson, and Island Pond. Residents and businesses in these areas will have access to enhanced services, including community trainings and events, and free energy assessments.

Community Energy Groups

In partnership with the Vermont Energy and Climate Action Network (VECAN), the Energy Action Network (EAN), and other clean energy organizations, we support grass-roots efforts to advance sustainable energy solutions at the community level. We provide guidance, educational materials and, in some cases, training and grants to catalyze action.

Examples include:

  • Offering trainings to dozens of employers and community groups on how to save energy at home and at work
  • Support for VECAN’s annual conference, connecting more than 100 town energy committees with trainings and ideas to drive action in their communities
  • Support to three Vermont communities competing for the national Georgetown University Energy Prize, a $5 million award for the community that drives the deepest and most sustainable energy savings over a two-year period

Municipalities and Schools

Vermont municipalities and schools turn to us for help improving the efficiency of their streetlighting, public buildings, and water and wastewater treatment plants. This directly benefits local taxpayers by reducing municipal energy costs while improving public infrastructure. In addition, we partner with the Vermont Energy Education Program to promote energy literacy in schools and support infrastructure improvements, turning schools into laboratories to inspire learning on sustainable energy.

  • Access technical assistance and incentives to help your town and school save energy and money
  • Reduce energy costs for your town and constraints on its municipal budget
  • Connect with schools and educators for hands-on learning

Business Associations

We provide business associations and economic development organizations with technical guidance and training in energy efficiency. As a result, they’re able help their members reduce energy usage and lower the cost of doing business. We also partner with the Vermont Agency of Commerce & Community Development (ACCD). By leveraging our resources—including rebates, services, and other incentives—we’re enhancing the economic vitality of Vermont’s downtowns.

  • Assistance for business and trade groups to help them educate and serve their members
  • Special support for downtowns in partnership with ACCD
  • In-person presentations on energy efficiency for business and economic development groups
