Please note that Efficiency Vermont's free consultations are separate from the Municipal Energy Resilience Program (MERP). Please visit the State's website to partcipate in MERP.

Only town officials can request a consultation for their municipality. If you are a member of a Town Energy Committee or other organization interested in helping your community save energy, please contact us here.

How the free energy consultation works

We start the conversation with a call or an email. From there, we’ll direct you to the resources to get the job done or set up a walkthrough with one of our experienced energy consultants. We will use our findings to recommend next steps, such as a comprehensive energy audit. All in-person walkthroughs follow strict safety protocols.

We can help you:

  • Identify the most impactful efficiency opportunities in your buildings
  • Provide technical support throughout the course of your project
  • Connect you with service providers to get the job done
  • Provide incentives or rebates for qualifying efficiency projects

Complete the form to sign up for your free consultation.

Participating in MERP?

The Municipal Energy Resilience Program (MERP) provides staff support, application and technical assistance, and funding to increase energy resilience, reduce energy use and operating costs, and curb greenhouse gas emissions by promoting a range of energy-saving and sustainable upgrades to municipal buildings.

MERP is a state-run program and is separate from Efficiency Vermont’s energy consultations. If you are seeking MERP support, please visit the state’s website to learn more.

“This saves taxpayers money and improves important community buildings, benefiting Orleans County for years to come.”

Mary Ann Fletcher, Treasurer, Orleans County
Why is saving energy important ?

By increasing the energy efficiency of buildings, towns can strengthen community resilience. Projects can help insulate the town from problems with aging infrastructure, extreme weather, and rising fuel prices. Energy costs can be a significant line item in a town’s annual operating budget. Local governments can get energy cost savings across town facilities by working with Efficiency Vermont.

Best places to consider projects:

  • Upgrade lighting systems with LED light fixtures and controls
  • Weatherize existing buildings
  • Use heat pump technologies for heating and cooling needs
  • Replace failing equipment with energy efficient options
  • Integrate energy efficiency into new construction projects
Is saving money your top priority?

As municipal decision makers, you have a lot of things on your mind. Energy efficiency may not be one of them; but we bet saving money is!

Municipal governments are busy. There are opportunities to save throughout municipal facilities, such as:

  • large and small administrative buildings
  • libraries
  • indoor and outdoor recreation centers
  • wastewater treatment plants
  • streetlights
  • parking structure lights
  • vehicle fleets

Let us help your town reduce energy costs.

Our financial offers help to minimize your up-front costs and maximize your return-on-investment. Investing in efficiency has never been easier.
