BPPA Mission Statement

To support and represent our members as we work to promote Vermont's building performance industry and to ensure the energy efficiency, comfort and safety of our residential and commercial buildings.



Solar Bonus Program 

BPPA's follow up to the Zero Energy Now program was designed to encourage customers to include envelope upgrades as part of their overall energy saving projects. Incentives were offered if certain envelope improvements were done in conjunction with solar installation. 



Green Mountain Power CEED Grant Program

In late 2015, BPPA applied for s major grant to design, develop, deliver, track and report comprehensive deep energy retrofit projects in 2016.

The funding was made available in February 2016 and BPPA's ZEN! (Zero Energy Now!) program was launched immediately.

Next steps for BPPA's Zero Energy Now Program include:

  • Impact Report
    Producing a comprehensive impact report utilizing real life data from the completed 30 projects.
  • ZEN in a Box
    Review of lessons learned and capturing and packaging all critical components of the program in a ZEN Manual for use in helping stakeholders to reproduce ZEN's success.
  • Act 56 Tier III
    BPPA will continue to promote ZEN as a potentially providing the critical programmatic structure that stakeholders, funders and policy makers need to enable wider adoption of whole energy approaches for residential and small business.

VT's DPS promotes energy efficiency and provides long range planning for the state's energy needs through the Comprehensive Energy Plan.

Because the DPS is charged with developing and implementing Vermont's Comprehensive Energy Plan, BPPA maintains a close relationship to insure that Building Performance Professionals' goals and concerns are well considered in all planning and development.


Clean Energy Finance Collaborative

Recently, BPPA has had representation on the Dept.'s Clean Energy Finance Collaborative holding a seat on the Collaborative's steering committee and small commercial working group. The goal of the Collaborative is to identify and address financing barriers that inhibit residential, small commercial and MUSH (municipalities, universities, schools and hospitals) from moving forward with energy efficiency projects.
