Vermont Utilities

Low-Income Rate Assistance
Green Mountain Power
Ten percent discount for customers whose annual household income is at or below 200 percent of the federal poverty level.

Low-Income Energy Efficiency
A unique “energy efficiency utility” called Efficiency Vermont was created by the Vermont legislature and Vermont Public Service Board to provide energy efficiency services to low-income and other customers. The Low-Income Single Family Program provides electric efficiency improvements to eligible customers of Vermont’s electric utilities (except in Burlington) who are actively enrolled in the federal Weatherization Assistance Program. Measures include energy efficiency lighting, refrigerator replacement, and water heater efficiency measures. Also provides energy efficiency measures to owners, managers and developers of multi-family housing units.

Green Mountain Power
Offers free weatherization service to low-income households through local weatherization agencies. Qualified technicians come to your home and inspect the heating system, make any necessary repairs, insulate, and seal air leaks. To see if you are income-eligible or to apply, call:
