The Southwest Vermont Council on Aging can help low income residents improve the energy efficiency of their homes.

  • Low income (household income of < $42,062.40) individuals – an SVCOA volunteer will go in and do a walkthrough but without the direct install of energy efficient products. Instead, the volunteer will assist the client in filling out the “Target High Use Form”. The Target High Use Form will then be forwarded on to Efficiency Vermont and BROC. Then, within 30 days of receiving the Target High Use Form, BROC will send out one of their trained volunteers to complete the direct install of energy efficient products as well as to install new appliances as needed at no cost to the client. NOTE – The appliances that may be installed under the free appliance replacement are: washing machines, refrigerators, freezers, hot water saving devices, electric hot water heaters or space heaters with new heat pump technology.
  • Not low income (household income of > $42,062.40) individuals – an SVCOA volunteer will go out and complete the direct install of energy efficient products. A home energy visit involves:
  •  Installing low-cost energy efficient products, such as compact fluorescent light bulbs and low-flow showerheads;
  • Identifying energy saving opportunities in the home, such as opportunities for replacing inefficient appliances and home weatherization; and,
  • Providing seniors with resources and information to help them save more energy.

A home energy visit is not a professional energy audit, but rather a walk-through assessment. Visits are conducted by trained volunteers who have been approved by the Southwest Vermont Council on Aging. Each visit lasts approximately 1 – 1 ½ hours.All energy efficient products are provided free-of-charge to seniors.If you are interested in scheduling a visit, please contact Aaron Brush at 802-772-7835.
