program summary

For individuals building new homes, Efficiency Vermont offers free technical assistance and targeted rebates to help ensure new homes are built as energy efficient as possible. The first step is to enroll in the Residential New Construction program. Upon enrollment, Efficiency Vermont will review building plans and go over designs to determine estimated energy costs for heating, cooling, hot water, lighting, and appliances. Efficiency Vermont will recommend ways to lower those costs and help the homeowner choose proper energy-efficient equipment, lighting, and appliances.

If you are income eligible, you may enroll in new homes to be Efficiency Vermont Certified, receive financial incentives and receive free energy consultation. Please visit here to learn more.
