We don't like to see anyone struggling to get through Vermont's winters without enough heat. So each year, we work with a number of state agencies and other organizations to help more than 170 Co-op members who are on limited incomes or facing tough challenges to stay warm all winter long.
Help Paying for Fuel Deliveries
Help Paying for Heating Equipment
Having a full tank of oil doesn’t help if your furnace or boiler won’t run. Heating equipment should be tuned-up each year and old, inefficient systems should be replaced.
But for Co-op members struggling to make ends meet, taking care of their furnace or boiler is often a low priority. Fortunately, help is available from Crisis Fuel Assistance, the Weatherization Program and Efficiency Vermont.
Using Less Energy
Vermont’s Weatherization Program provides long-term help to low-income Vermonters by improving the energy efficiency of their homes. By adding insulation, sealing air leaks and replacing heating systems, weatherization typically produces energy savings of at least 30%.
