Zero and Low Interest Loans to Improve Energy Efficiency
The Vermont Gas HomeBase Retrofit Program is designed to help customers with larger than average gas usage find ways to improve the efficiency of multi-family homes. Vermont Gas customers whose multi-family building’s total usage is 1,400 ccf per year or greater is eligible for this program. Typical measures include blown-in cellulose insulation for walls and ceilings and specific air sealing measures designed to make houses less drafty. In some cases, heating system and distribution improvements are also recommended. Usually Vermont Gas will rebate one third of the installed cost of the recommended measures and provide a reduced interest loan through the Opportunities Credit Union for the remaining balance. Currently, customers are offered loans at 0% interest for up to 3 years, 2% interest for up to 5 years, or 4% interest for up to 7 years. Contact: Vermont Gas, HomeBase Programs, P.O.
