Renewable Energy Vermont Launches New Tool for Property Owners
MONTPELIER, VT—Renewable Energy Vermont in partnership with the Renewable Energy Resource Center, a project of Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, have launched a new resource for Vermonters looking to install solar photovoltaic panels (PV), solar hot water systems, or modern wood pellet boilers. The project was made possible due to funding from the Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF). The Vermont Renewable Energy Business Listing (VREBL) located online at www.revermont.org/vrebl/ offers a detailed, one stop listing of experts ready to help homeowners, farmers, and businesses affordably reduce climate pollution and save money with clean energy solutions.
“The new online Renewable Energy Business Listing details more than 70 local businesses offering expert advice and experience in helping Vermont property owners increase their energy independence by installing renewable energy solutions,” stated Ansley Bloomer, Renewable Energy Vermont Assistant Director.
The online tool enables consumers to find a renewable energy installer near them, as well as compare company experience and qualifications. Consumers may search the list by technology type, business location, installation experience, and other credentials.
“With net metering rates set to change starting in 2017, and new incentives for modern wood heat now available, it’s a good time for Vermont homeowners and businesses to consider installing clean energy solutions,” encouraged Bloomer.
The new tool is one of several ways that Renewable Energy Vermont (REV) aims to help consumers make informed choices about their energy future. REV’s website also includes an informed buyer guide – www.revermont.org/resources/how-to-be-an-informed-buyer/ and other resources for electricity consumers.
Installers of solar PV panels, solar hot water and wood pellet boilers who are not already listed may contact REV at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to obtain an application form to join the listing.
