The Energy Committee is being formed. The Energy Coordinator is David Eichelberger, appointed by the select board in April, 2019.
According to Efficiency Vermont in December, 2017, financing options for customers looking to invest in energy improvements are getting better every day. What started as a nascent sector in 2009 with the creation of the Property Assessed Clean Energy (PACE) financing program, is now a sector serving thousands of Vermont families with low-interest loans to invest in energy upgrades. Due to this market evolution, Efficiency Vermont will no longer administer new PACE financing, but rather shift its focus to administer the HeatSaver Loan Program.
Marlboro created a PACE district and adopted the PACE program pursuant to Title 24, Chapter 87 of Vermont Statutes Annotated, as amended (the Act). The program allows homeowners to finance energy efficiency improvements and renewable energy systems through an assessment attached to their residence.

The Town of Marlboro received funding to have Energy Audits done on the Town Office/Post Office, the Firehouse and MES. These audits were be completed by Thermal House from Jamaica, VT. They graciously agreed to have people from Town that are interested to stop by and learn about the process. You may decide to have an audit done on your own home at some point in the future. The Audit for MES was done at 3:15PM on Wednesday, 6/2/10.
The Audit for the Town Office/PO and Firehouse was done at 10AM on Friday, 6/4/10 at the Town Office.
