PSD Announces Clean Energy Funding Opportunity for Schools and Municipalities

The Department of Public Service (PSD) is issuing a notice of funding opportunity (NOFO) for Vermont’s public schools and municipalities to access $1.0 million in U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) funds through a congressionally directed spending award originating with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Grant awards will be made to provide financial and technical support for the installation and/or repair of clean energy technologies in public schools and municipal buildings in underserved and disadvantaged communities in Vermont, with the goal of lowering their energy costs, decreased emissions from heating and power sources, and increased exposure and experience with clean energy technologies in these public buildings.

Clean energy measures supported via this funding opportunity are limited to the following technologies:

  • Solar photovoltaic (PV) systems, up to 15 kW AC
  • Advanced wood-fueled heating systems
  • Cold climate air- or ground-source heat pumps

For further information, please see the NOFO document or the Department's Renewables webpage.

Questions should be sent to:
