Project Description

Project / Program Description

Install 3 to 3.5 kw pv solar systems on 30 to 33 low to moderate income (LMI) households from 5/1/17 to 10/31/18 in Windham & Windsor County VT, Green Mountain Power's service area. 

Identify if an energy audit was done; if no, enroll them with Southeastern Vermont Community Action for an energy audit to identify & implement weatherization & energy saving measures.  

Work with the LMI Household and Windham-Windosr Housing Trust to finance a lower monthly payment than the  electric bill $ that will be replaced by the solar system.

The socioeconomic benefits to the community include:

 -  training and jobs in pv solar installation, 

 -  lower energy cost and more comfortable homes for LMI households
