eHome Program Includes Heat Pumps, Solar Systems & More
Green Mountain Power is transforming the way we all use energy with its eHome program, a holistic home energy initiative that helps people save money, have greater comfort in their homes, and reduce fossil fuel use. This program started in Rutland, helping one family incorporate multiple energy and money saving technologies, starting with improving the thermal shell of their home. More than 100 families and small businesses are now saving money and are more comfortable in their GMP eHome or eBiz!
The eHome and eBiz concept is that GMP makes it easy for our customers to make energy upgrades in their homes, often combining it with financing that improves their cash flow immediately. Green Mountain Power sends an energy expert to assess your home, including whether it can benefit from weatherization, air-source heating and cooling systems (cold-climate heat pumps) that use half the energy of traditional propane or oil systems, hyper-efficient heat pump water heaters, efficient LED lighting, and innovative home automation controls to see energy use in real time and allow you to control thermostats, lights and heat pumps, even when you aren’t at home. GMP also discusses rooftop solar possibilities and electric vehicles during the evaluation of your energy goals for your home. GMP then coordinates with local contractors to make the home improvements, ensuring a hassle-free experience with money-saving results.
New products and services are always in the innovation pipeline. Green Mountain Power is the first utility to partner with Tesla on its new Powerwall, a home battery storage system that can be used with solar to store locally generated energy, or without solar to store power from the grid. GMP expects the first batteries to arrive in Vermont soon!
