Letter: Incentives to Reduce Energy Use

To the Editor:

Efficiency Vermont has extended through the end of 2013 its $500 bonus incentive to anyone who completes home-efficiency improvements that achieve at least a 10 percent reduction in air leakage through its Home Performance with Energy Star program. This $500 bonus is on top of its $100 discount on all home energy audits this year and its $2,000 in additional home energy improvement incentives through the same program. For more information, go to http://www.efficiencyvermont.com/homeperformance or call 888-921-5990 or contact the Sustainable Energy Resource Group.

Efficiency Vermont has also announced $1,000 bonus incentives through the end of the year for anyone completing the minimum improvements through its building-performance program for small businesses and commercial buildings of 10,000 square feet or less to minimize energy use and save money by improving insulation and reducing air leakage.
