Start Saving Today!
We’ve customized this list to help you save money in your residential rental property today with Efficiency Vermont rebates, and for years to come with energy savings.
Efficiency Vermont provides free compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs), low-flow shower heads, and faucet aerators, as well as rebates for energy-efficient refrigerators and ventilation fans for use in residential rental properties.
In addition to free CFL bulbs for apartments, rebates for energy-efficient choices are available for common hallways, laundry rooms, outdoor lighting, and more. Efficient lighting also gives off less heat, reducing the need for air conditioning. Occupancy sensors save money by turning off lighting in occasionally used spaces.
Your small rental property may be eligible for Building Performance, a program designed to improve the comprehensive energy efficiency of buildings. Efficiency Vermont offers up to $5,000 per building (less than 10,000 sq. ft.) to help pay for energy efficiency improvements completed by a participating Building Performance Institute certified contractor. Efficiency Vermont also partners with local weatherization services that provide additional assistance to properties with income-qualified tenants.
Efficiency Vermont incentives are now available for efficient boilers and furnaces (liquid propane and oil). Energy-efficient and optimized HVAC equipment and controls can reap significant long-term cost savings, increase equipment reliability, and create more comfortable rental properties.
Efficiency Vermont offers financial and technical assistance to help businesses increase the comfort of building occupants and optimize the efficiency of both large and small new construction and major renovation projects.
