How to Get Started

Call us to talk about your new multifamily construction or gut rehab project—and get us involved early. An energy consultant will work with you from start to finish to inform the design, recommend energy-efficient approaches, and determine your financial incentive.

Eligibility Requirements

For substantial renovations of existing buildings, our energy consultants can provide access to incentives for replacing appliances, lighting, heating and cooling systems, and thermal shell improvements.

Products and Services for Property Owners

All existing rental properties qualify for appliance, weatherization, and heating and ventilation system rebates, as well as free energy-efficient products like LEDs, low-flow shower heads, and faucet aerators. Investing in efficient lighting, appliances, and equipment helps keep tenants satisfied with low fuel and electric bills, while ventilation systems help guard against mildew and mold issues. And low-flow shower heads and faucet aerators can save an average of $140 per year for a four-unit rental property.

Income-Based Multifamily Renovation

For large multifamily properties with at least 50% occupancy by income-qualified renters, Efficiency Vermont contracts with 3E Thermal to project manage efficiency upgrades. 3E Thermal will conduct an audit, develop a scope of work, and coordinate with contractors and your local weatherization agency. Services can include air sealing, insulation, and installation of energy-saving equipment and products.
