2021 REBATE/INCENTIVE PROGRAMS
Stowe Electric has again partnered with Efficiency Vermont to provide for a robust incentive program and we are offering customers a range of rebates and discounts in 2021 towards the purchase and installation of technologies to help reduce fossil fuel consumption. Some of our rebates have been changed to a point of purchase incentive with an additional post-purchase utility rebate. This year we added an additional opportunity for those wishing to purchase and use an e-bike to help reduce their carbon footprint. Please see below for details.
Customers eligible for rebates of $600 or more will be required to submit a W-9 form with the rebate application.
COLD CLIMATE HEAT PUMPS - ductless and ducted
Decarbonizing Vermonters' heating needs will help us exceed state's carbon emissions reduction goals. Cold-climate heat pumps can be used to cut the reliance on heating oil or propane as they will work down to sub-zero temperatures to help heat your home. Stowe Electric provides different rebates for CCHPs depending on if they are Ductless or Ducted and the size of the units.
In 2021, Stowe Electric is carrying over the $675 rebate offered in 2020. One change to this program is that this year we have combined forces with Efficiency Vermont to offer a portion of our original rebate as a discount at the point of purchase. Customers will work with a participating HVAC contractor to receive a point of sale discount of $250 for qualified units.
Please visit Efficiency Vermont website for more helpful information and details.
Through our partnership with Efficiency Vermont, customers purchasing a qualified ducted cold climate heat pump, are eligible to receive a point of sale discount.

Vermonters travel a lot by vehicle. Transportation makes up roughly 47% of Vermont’s green house gas emissions. Electric vehicles offer a real opportunity for Vermonters to cut their fossil fuel usage and cost less to operate and maintain than a traditional vehicle.
Thankfully, the State of Vermont and Stowe Electric are offering incentives that will help make the switch to an EV a little more affordable. Switching to an EV will help to cut carbon and the cost of your commute.
