What is “Energy Coaching”?

Energy Coaching

Each person on the Energy Co-op’s member services team is focused on helping homeowners use less fossil fuel and save money. We call this “Energy Coaching”. 

Whether it’s explaining our budget and price protection plans, helping you decide if it’s time for a new heating system, figuring out if your home is suitable for a heat pump or scheduling an energy audit, our staff is trained to coach you on the best ways to improve your home’s efficiency and comfort.

It all gets down to the fact that we are not-for-profit business that puts “people before profits”. That’s why our members can rely on our advice to be in their best interest. Our goal is to coach you on ways to “win” the energy savings game with smart, targeted and cost-effective improvements.

There’s never a fee for consultations or cost estimates. We’re here to help!

Our Member Testimonials

  • We already feel a difference in the house.

    We are so pleased with how the weatherization work turned out. I can tell you we already feel a difference in the house. The crew was great to work with -- friendly, respectful of our space and hard working! They always wore masks when inside, too, which we appreciated.

    Christie V., Colchester, VT
  • Efficiency Success Story

    We've been Co-op members since 2012. In 2005 after using 1,823 gallon of heating oil and five cords of wood for heat and hot water we set out on a long-term effort to bring our energy use under control.

  • Helpful and Fair

    I'd never use any company other than Energy Co-Op of Vermont. They are helpful and fair. You can choose a budget plan, which allows your payments to be spread out over the year (and thus enjoy a price cap, and a DROP in your payments should the price go down during the year).

  • Committed to Reducing Fossil Fuel Footprint

    My wife and I are committed to reducing our fossil energy footprint, and have been heating our home with wood, trying to use our old oil burner only as backup. Unfortunately, this leaves some cold corners in the house, including our kid's room.
