Grant To Fund Home Efficiency Projects

10/01/12 6:06AM

A million dollar grant will help the Burlington Electric Department provide financing to customers for energy efficiency projects.

The grant will provide "on-bill financing," a utility-run program that offers upfront funds to customers to make improvements that save energy and, in turn, lower their bills.

The savings on customers' energy bills are then used to make installment payments on the projects.

U-S Senator Bernie Sanders will join Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger and others to provide details on the grant at a news conference Monday morning in Burlington.
