The Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, a nonprofit organization, has developed a number of innovative financing arrangements and partnerships to help low- and moderate-income Vermonters reduce their energy bills. When less energy is used, fewer fossil fuels are burned. The combustion of fossil fuels produces carbon dioxide, an important atmospheric gas that is increasing in concentration and contributing to global climate change. Working with the state housing finance agency and other public and private partners, the Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC) has cut energy use in low-income multifamily buildings, helped low- and moderate-income Vermont homeowners make energy efficiency improvements, and led a successful effort to establish a city ordinance on energy efficiency for residential rental units.
