Green Mountain Power, Vermont’s largest electricity utility, is extending its carbon-reduction rebate programs through 2022. The rebates were set to expire at the end of this year.
In 2021, GMP customers received more than 7,000 rebates when they switched away from fossil fuel at home and on the road – for heating, driving, mowing their lawn, and electric motorcycles. GMP rebates include a $1,500 rebate on all electric vehicles, plus an extra $1,000 for low- and moderate-income customers, and a $400 base rebate on cold climate heat pumps with an extra $800 in incentives for income-eligible customers in partnership with Efficiency Vermont.
In 2021, GMP rebates and customized projects with business customers around the state will offset more than 173,000 metric tons of lifetime carbon emissions – the equivalent of taking 38,000 gas-fueled cars off the road.
