Montpelier, Vermont – The Public Service Department’s Clean Energy Development Fund (CEDF) released today a request for proposals (RFP) to design and administer a modern wood heating program in, and for the benefit of, Windham County, Vermont.  The CEDF has allocated $1.6 million of the funds reserved for Windham County for the creation of a modern wood heating program focused on installing efficient wood pellet/chip heating systems in schools and municipal buildings in Windham County.

This RFP is a continuation of the CEDF’s recently established strategic focus on modern wood heating throughout Vermont.

Through this RFP, the CEDF plans to issue a contract (or contracts) for the design, development, implementation, and administration of a modern wood heating program(s) in Windham County starting in 2015. The CEDF goals for the program are four-fold:

  2. Leverage the program activity and funds to maximize the number of energy efficiency measures completed at buildings installing modern wood heating systems.
  3. Leverage the program activity and funds to maximize the cost effectiveness and energy cost savings of the modern wood heating systems installed.
  4. Maximize the number of modern wood heating systems installed and/or the amount of square footage heated with modern wood heating appliances.
