In 2005, the Vermont General Assembly established the Vermont Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF) through Act 74 (30 V.S.A. § 8015). The purpose of the Fund is to increase the development and deployment of cost-effective and environmentally sustainable electric power resources – primarily with respect to renewable energy resources, and the use of combined heat and power technologies - in Vermont. 


  • Revised September 29, 2014 (September 8, 2014) -- CEDF proposes changes to the Small Scale Renewable Energy Incentive Program
  • September 8, 2014 -- Request for Information on the Development of the Windham County Modern Wood Heating Program

    • The CEDF issued a request for information (RFI) regarding the Clean Energy Development Fund’s (CEDF) Windham County Modern Wood Heating program.  In the CEDF’s fiscal year 2015 annual plan $1.6 million was allocated for a modern wood heating program in Windham County to be focused on installing modern wood pellet heating systems in schools and municipal buildings. 

      The CEDF plans to issue a contract (or contracts) for the design, development and administration of this modern wood heating program in Windham County. The CEDF is issuing this RFI to inform the issuance of a request for proposals (RFP) to select an organization (or a team of several contractors or organizations) to design and administer the program.

      Responses to this request for information can be sent via email, fax, or post to the CEDF at the following addresses:

      In order to influence the issuance of the RFP responses should be received by the CEDF no later than September 29th, 2014 at 4:30 p.m.  Responses received earlier are appreciated.

On July 25, 2014 the Clean Energy Development Board approved the Fiscal Year 2015 Annual Plan and Budget for the CEDF as revised and presented by the Department of Public Service.
