Commitment to Action

Making the Green Mountain State Green

Commitment by

Neighborworks of Western Vermont

In 2013, NeighborWorks of Western Vermont (NWWVT) committed to retrofit 1,000 homes in a five county area of Vermont by 2015, scaling up NWWVT's HEAT Squad program implemented in 2010 with a U.S. Department of Energy Better Buildings grant. The five HEAT Squads, in partnership with Efficiency Vermont, Home Performance BPI certified contractors, and other partnering entities will encourage and enable 1,000 households to undergo retrofits in two years, building the infrastructure needed to achieve the organization's ultimate goal of transforming statewide market demand for efficiency retrofits such that homeowners of all incomes are well-informed, able, and motivated to invest in energy efficiency measures to save energy and money.
