How does it work?

  • Start your project by September 2017 with a BPPA contractor to receive a solar bonus of up to $1,000 off your installation
  • Cut your fossil fuel use by 50% when you pair solar with air sealing and insulation, and receive up to $2,000 back
  • Incorporate other energy saving systems like heat pump heating and cooling systems to save even more, and get additional Efficiency Vermont rebates

Efficiency first

Air sealing, adding insulation, and upgrading heating and cooling systems reduces your energy use and gets your home "solar ready." Minimizing energy loss in the home maximizes the benefits of installing solar panels to generate your own clean energy.

A smart investment

Not only will solar save you money on your electric bills, research from Lawrence Berkeley National Labs has found that solar panels can increase the resale value of your home by as much as $15,000.

Participating in this program will also reduce your fossil fuel use by half, eliminating an estimated 5000 pounds of carbon dioxide every year.

Don't miss out.

This is a limited-time offer. Submit your info and a customer support specialist will contact you to confirm your eligibility and discuss how to start your project.
