These 3 Vermont Businesses Invested in Energy Efficiency and it Paid Off

One of the costs of doing business is paying for the energy to run equipment, lighting, and other essentials. Energy costs can be lowered by investing in energy efficient equipment and controls. But where does the money to invest come from? And will the investment pay off?

These Vermont businesses, from Bennington to Newport, financed their energy saving projects with assistance from Efficiency Vermont. In each of these cases, the work will pay off quickly and has provided positive cash flow from day one.
