Energy Information for Residents


Home & Business Energy Assessments & Improvements

Save money; save energy.   It’s a win/win.

  • Efficiency Vermont is the place to start for guidance for both homes and businesses in Vermont. Efficiency Vermont works to “provide objective advice, technical services, and financial support to help you create healthier, happier, more comfortable spaces.”
  • The US Department of Energy has many links related to energy saving. See their “save energy, save money” tab for a list of categories.   It’s worth taking a few minutes to go through their home energy checklist, most of which are “common sense” items, but it still worthwhile to see if there are items on the list that your home could benefit from.
  • Energy Star is the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) website for homes and businesses. They have a good on-line home assessment.  Note:  you will need your home’s heated area and totals of your utility and/or heating bills for the past year.
  • A Vermonter’s Guide to Residential Clean Heating and Cooling
  • Renters . . . While much of the available information is for home owners, both Efficient Vermont and the US Department of Energy have pages focused on renters: EV renters and DoE renters.
