Efficiency Vermont offers rebates to encourage the installation of efficient compressors. Rebates amounts are dependent on the type of equipment. There is no set limit on the amount of rebates that a customer may receive, but rebates above $5,000 will require pre-approval from Efficiency Vermont.
There are incentives for variable frequency drive screw compressors (10-40 HP), air receivers/tanks for load/no-load compressors, cycling refrigerated dryers (up to 200 CFM capacity), no-loss drains, and air-entraining air nozzles. Efficiency Vermont provides a list of "Compressed Air Eligible Products List" of products eligible for rebates. Certain products not on the list may be eligible pending a review by Efficiency Vermont. Custom rebates may be available. Customers of the Burlington Electric Department (BED) must seek pre-approval for all projects and must return the rebate form to BED directly. Applicants must comply with eligibility requirements, use only the eligible equipment, and follow all terms and conditions.
