Green Mountain Power (GMP) is extending its rebate programs through all of 2022 to help more customers save money while reducing carbon emissions.
In 2021, GMP customers saved with more than 7,000 rebates when they made the choice to switch away from fossil fuels at home and on the road – for heating, driving, mowing their lawns, and electric motorcycles. Rebates include $1,500 on all electric vehicles, plus an extra $1,000 for low- and moderate-income customers, and a $400 base rebate on cold climate heat pumps with an extra $800 in incentives for income-eligible customers in partnership with Efficiency Vermont.
The Vermont Natural Resources Council (VNRC) cut costs with GMP incentives while completing the renovation of a historic house in Montpelier to serve as new office and expanded meeting space.
“One of our goals was a net-zero building, and GMP’s incentives were a huge help in swapping out an old, inefficient oil-burning boiler for cold climate heat pumps,” said Brian Shupe, VNRC’s executive director. “GMP’s incentives also helped us install an electric vehicle charging station to help staff and visitors convert to electric vehicles.”
In 2021, the rebates and customized projects with business customers around the state will offset more than 173,000 metric tons of lifetime carbon emissions – the equivalent of taking 38,000 gas-fueled cars off the road.
