Green Mountain Power CEED Grant Program/ZERO ENERGY NOW!

In late 2015, BPPA applied for about $700,000 in funding 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. All projects had to be completed by December 31, 2016.


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

  • 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.

2017  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.

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.


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.
