Stowe Electric continues to partner with Efficiency Vermont to provide a robust incentive program that offers customers rebates towards the purchase and installation of technologies that help reduce fossil fuel consumption.


Decarbonizing Vermonters' heating needs will help us exceed Vermont's carbon emissions reduction goals. Heat pumps, mini-split or cold climate heat pumps, air-to-water, heat-pump water heaters, ground-sources (geothermal) and whole building heat pumps, are used to cut reliance on heating oil or propane.

Stowe Electric provides different rebates for Heat Pump technology. 

Stowe Electric Department and Efficiency Vermont Joint Heat Pump Program

Customers will receive a rebate through Efficiency Vermont and Stowe Electric’s joint offering for each eligible heat pump purchased and installed in 2023. Through our partnership with Efficiency Vermont, customers that purchase a qualified ductless or ducted cold climate heat pump, air-to-water heat pump, heat-pump water heater, whole-building heat pump, and ground-source (geothermal) heat pump are eligible for a point-of-sale discount.

electric vehicles

Vermonters travel a lot by vehicle. Transportation makes up roughly 47% of Vermont’s greenhouse 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 your emissions and the cost of your commute.
