Income Based

Depending on your income, you may qualify to receive no-cost energy efficiency services, such as in-home audits, air sealing, insulation, and heating system upgrades.  The Vermont Weatherization Program helps lower-income residents save fuel and money by improving the energy efficiency of their homes. These services may include a "whole house" assessment of energy-related problems and "full-service" energy-efficient retrofits.
