Vermont Gas - Residential Energy Efficiency Program

May 09, 2023


NEW for 2023: With the rising prices of efficient equipment, we’ve increased our rebate levels and added a bonus incentive for income-eligible households. Please note these rebate amounts are guaranteed for equipment installed by 8/31/2023 and may be subject to change for the remainder of the year.

Vermont Gas offers rebates for residential customers who replace existing heating equipment or water heaters with more energy efficient ones. Rebates vary depending on technology. All equipment must meet program efficiency requirements. Customers can use any natural gas certified contractor. Visit the program website or contact utility for more information.
