This rebate program was available 2005 to 2010. It was not available in 2011. This information is provided for reference only. Efficiency Vermont offers rebates to encourage the installation of efficient motors and variable frequency drives (VFD). Rebates amounts are dependent on the horsepower size and efficiency of the VFD or the motor. There is no set limit on the amount of rebates that a customer may take, but rebates above $2,500 will require pre-approval from Efficiency Vermont.

Eligible motors should be new and meet or exceed the Nominal Efficiencies standards (NEMA) efficiencies listed on the application. They should be in service for at least 2,000 hours a year.
