Montpelier Net Zero Revolving Loan Fund

The Net Zero Revolving Loan Fund was established in 2016 to help finance municipal energy efficiency and renewable energy investments in the City. The Fund is administered by City staff with the support of the Montpelier Energy Advisory Committee, which is tasked with spearheading the city’s Net Zero Montpelier initiative. The Net Zero Revolving Loan Fund is aimed at capturing and tracking savings from sustainability projects and utilizing some of those savings for subsequent projects. In addition to funding stand-alone energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, the City can also use the fund to pay the marginal costs of efficiency improvements within larger capital projects.
